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.

"Maybe, they are an interesting family."

by ShellDeFelice on February 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Ella's goldfish have recently become very chumy, always swimming next to each other. When she asked why, I said," Maybe they are in love?" "Can't be she says, they are both girls. But Mom, maybe they are one of those interesting families, how cool would that be?" "Interesting?" I ask. "Yes, she says, I told my teacher that sometimes girls marry girls and sometimes boys marry boys and my teacher said, That is very interesting!"

Saturday, Sunday, Monday (bonus!!) Funday...cleaning the fish tank. Life doesn't get any better than hanging with a tiny angel who embraces the world, just as she finds it.
