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.

Interpreter friend coins new term: Deanergy.

by ADHDean on February 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm ADHD, and that's no secret. Consequently, when I'm interpreting, my hands can become a blur if I'm not monitoring my speed. My two teamers last week teased me about how lasers appeared to be shooting out of my fingers. Angie (the one who helped me with the Puppy Bellies Six) decided to call it my "Deanergy." I kinda like it. Maybe I'll start an interpreters' clothing line with that name. The duds will be in all dark, solid colors, noiseless, and they'll be breathable enough to wick away any sweat caused by furious hand flapping.
