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.

Head West. Pitch In. Feel Good.

by ciofki on May 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

In the town of West, Texas, there is a little reported story of a fertilizer plant explosion. It has been overshadowed by the Boston bombing, the NBA coming out story, the cleaveland abuductions, the Arias court story, etc... All of the above are certainly important news events, but so is the West, Texas story. If any of my fellow six-ers are interested, google it, who knows, you may be moved to head west, pitch in and feel good. Bless you all.
