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.

by Staraj on April 8, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Relax NRA members. I'm just joking. I don't even own a pistol. Instead, how about a couple of bitch slaps on behalf of the millions of concerned Americans, who believe the gun lobby's ho should be treated as such? Still too mean? Okay, okay. Just allow me to sneak some truth serum into his water minutes before his next testimony before a Congressional committee. No? Whoopee cushion on his chair that makes a gunshot sound?
