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.

Bought a pool, can't use it

by TheUnknownComic on April 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I know how to swim, I just can't. So I can wade in the pool, or use paddle board or something. I will probably float on a lounger or something at some point. However, in order for my back to heal, no freestyle swimming (backstroke is out too, can't hold my neck in the butterfly position, and the only breast stroke I like to do requires a woman).
