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.

MOM: 'Do something for your country!'

by Dhani on May 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

(True memoir) This was Mom's MANTRA in the 1940s whenever my sis & I would get her knickers in a twist -and she wasn't talking about Uncle Sam or the then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt -she was talking about HOUSECLEANING! -throwing out the trash, cleaning our rooms, feeding Dad´s caged hunter beagles. 'Do something for your COUNTRY!'
