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.

'Love' sixes for daughter= imaginary love?

by thesagittarian12 on March 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I often wonder if I will feel genuine love for her if we ever meet. Is it possible to be in the physical presence of someone you've never met and feel an overwhelming sense of paternal care and concern simply because, swimming around inside and on top of them, is an ocean of DNA identical to yours? My most inspirational writing on this website begins and ends with her. I've found the Holy Grail. Now I'm waiting for it to want to be held safely in my arms.
