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.

That is one big gum wad.

A student was in class earlier chomping on a HUGE wad of gum. It was so big, his entire body was into the act of chomping that gum wad. I couldn't help but laugh as his face continually contorted in the process of chewing. Alas, as long as it isn't under his desk I don't care.
