A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

What's your favorite kind of pen?

by illuminatrix on February 5, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

No, seriously. I've got very specific tastes. I like super fine-tip felt pens and a certain type of 'fude' (foo-day) pen, basically a pen with a tip shaped to resemble a Japanese calligraphy brush. I'm also aware of how nice a top-end ballpoint can be (have a Cross pen that's decent, not amazing). Any calligraphy aficionados or other pen weirdos like me?
