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.

What's on your spring cleaning playlist?

by Wench on March 19, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Whenever I get in the mood for a major cleaning overhaul, I have to have music. It's usually something upbeat but it varies from big band Sinatra to The Bouncing Souls, with every feel-good genre in between. And yes, I've definitely been that embarrassing lady with the hairbrush singing along with Alicia Keys, "IF IT AINT YOU, BABY, IF I AINT GOT YOU, BABY!!!!"

What's your motivational music?
