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.

Pouring love into two fish now!

by lillybrook on March 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We went to the pet store to get a new fish. I took the great advice of my SMITH pals and honored Olivia's request for a new pet to replace her recently passed beta, Sam-I-Am.

She couldn't decide on a fish, so the big siblings got in the act of helping but... in the process they BOTH fell in love with different fish. So, we got two.

Here they are: Thomas Edison and Tesla.
