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.

Feel I should be somewhere more.

by Layne on February 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

In true overachieving fashion, it's February break and I haven't really done much yet. It's nice, but it go me thinking. I don't know what I want to do with my life, but I want to take adventures. I want to hike through a rain forest with the natives. I want to go surfing in Hawaii. I want to spend some period of my life in Sydney, Austrailia. I feel like there should be more to this, or that I could do more, be more. I've heard of these boarding school that you can go to for specialities; a girl I know goes for ski racing in the winter. None of my specialty facets offer things like that though that I know of. Now, I don't want to get away from my school. I have great friends, the academics and sports are great. I just want something more than this.
