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.

She deserves an explanation- not today.

I'm pretty sure she has actually quit this time because she wasn't getting enough hours. My feelings for her have been getting stronger, the problem is either she somehow wasn't aware of that (course in mind-reading needed, perhaps) or wasn't prepared to allow me the distance I needed. Still, she deserves an explanation and if I find out that she has definitely quit, she'll get one- via Facebook. Emotionally coward that I am, telling her how I felt to her face was just too damn hard.
