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.

Everything is better whenever anyone asks

by TheUnknownComic on May 4, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've decided I'm going to just tell anyone that I'm doing better whenever they ask. Better is a relative term anyway; it isn't really quantifiable. Also, you can be doing better one day and then worse the next. I am initiating this strategy because lately people have become argumentative with me when I say I feel the same. I move better they say, seem to be in less pain as if they are a better judge of my pain then me.
