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.

Graffiti project will include sixes. Anyone?

by Amapola on March 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A friend will be painting my 10-meter long wall in my patio with graffiti. He asked me for my favourite six of MY sixes and I can't choose one.

Then I thought, why not invite you to write and offer me some, so I can choose which ones will go on my patio wall - that'd be super awesome!

And if you have a favourite of mine, let me know!
