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.

Literature class choice, kinda scared teacher.

by BecomingLuke on March 26, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I need one more English credit to graduate, so I was given 4 choices: American Lit, Creative Writing, Gothic Lit, Mythology... I chose Gothic Lit and my teacher almost fell over in shock because I'm the quietest kid in the class (possibly the school).

But seriously, it looks like an awesome class! It's basically all Frankenstein, Dracula, Edgar Allen Poe and Gothic Poetry.
