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.

Just how much is too much?

by It's A Secret on May 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

As some of you may know from reading my memoirs, I've been going through some rough times lately. Attempting to leave an abusive situation, being in the hospital for a long period of time (not related to the former), etc. Now someone very close to me wants to talk about it. I'm perfectly fine with it, but these situations can be a little awkward and overly emotional. Just how much information would be too much to tell this person?
