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.

Nothing's right. Not even the carrots.

by Wench on March 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Tonight, my mom is pissed off because when I chopped the carrots for dinner tonight a) I didn't save a teaspoon of carrot greens (she literally took them out of the compost, rinsed them off, and put them on the counter) and b) I didn't cut the carrot ends close enough, I wasted a quarter of an inch of perfectly good carrot. I'm serious. She is actually upset with me about this.
