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 20 gross of pencils wholesale.

by ErikaStellar on May 2, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Students never have the excuse in my room that they can't do work due to pencil deficiency. I bought them three years ago and I still have about 10 gross.
Of course, I'm convinced that there is a black-hole somewhere with the other 10 gross of pencils. The same black-hole where lost dryer socks go to play.
