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.

Kudos to Six-Word for WD101 nod!

I was a little disappointed that no one commented on this one. The Writer's Digest list of the 101 Best Websites for Writers includes agent blogs and other websites that are writer resources. The noted sites provide instruction, advice, and important publishing information. There are six sites (six reference is happy coincidence) that are categorized as creativity resources, including sixwordmemoirs.com. For me, it is a great place to be inspired by the creativity of others and to stir one's own creative juices. Since I have met some of the most wonderful entertaining and inspiring people here, I'd have to say it is also one of the best social sites that can be enjoyed on the net.
