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.

I've never understood job title "inflation".

by NumbrOneAunt on April 24, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

today is "administrative professionals day" or (as it used to be known) "secretaries' day". i'm a secretary at a university. i've never felt the need to jazz up that job title or make it sound more impressive or whatever the thinking is behind the change. i work hard, i consistently strive to make things easier and better for my students and faculty and i honestly believe i make a positive difference. that's enough for me, thanks.
