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.

Necesito ayuda pero no me entiendes

by Layne on May 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's getting close to finals time, and I'm working as hard as I can to get through it. I've finally found that a huge issue I've had with my teacher that I haven't gotten along with is that when I ask for help and support, she hasn't given it. It's always been a 'figure it out yourself' situation that she made seem like something was wrong with me. It's like this whole year I've been speaking a foreign language she can't comprehend.
