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.

Need 12 Step for baby addiction.

by ShellDeFelice on March 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have five kids. The oldest is 33 and the youngest is 6. I also have 5 grandchildren. I love everything about babies. The way they smell, their chubby cheeks and angelic grins. I love the way they take in the world, just as they find it.
It's a good thing nature cuts you off, or I would most likely continue on in my prolific ways. I have a bizare attachment to this contest picture of the two babies now, like I need to find them and pick them up for a snuggle!
