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.

Pause the Stress. Build a fort.

by ShellDeFelice on April 7, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

100% inspired by our darling Lilybrook. This evening when I get Ella home I am going to build a fort of blankets and sheets around the boxes and have a picnic with her. In celebration of the moment; a miraculous gift I have been given to spend time with this little rosebud in her 6th year on the planet.
