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.

Discounted chocolate makes great cookie add-ins.

In a hurry and need kid cookies? Try this:

1 pkg Duncan Hines Swiss Choc. cake mix
2 eggs
1 cup oil

Mix. Mix in chips, candy, whatever. Top with sprinkles, or not. Bake at 345 for approx. 10 minutes. One batch makes 20 or so cookies. They turn out like grocery store bakery cookies, chewy in the middle. You can use any flavor cake mix. The Swiss chocolate is my favorite. Yellow cake will turn out the most like regular choc chip cookies. Store in airtight container or they'll get crunchy.
