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.

Your favorite flavor of birthday cake?

by ShellDeFelice on June 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Someone claimed to love me once, yet every year on my birthday they bought me a white cake with white frosting. I detest white cake.
If you care about someone you should know their favorite choice for a birthday dessert.
It doesn't have to be cake, but birthday cakes are a mini celebration and should say that I care enough to know what you enjoy eating.
