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.

Lack of formal education cruelling me

by thesagittarian12 on June 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Some people know right from the get go what they want to do with their lives. I was never one of them. A lack of formal education has meant I now work in a job working with intellectually retarded (I mean that in a broad sense) people and for low pay. I'm not (seriously) complaining, mind you. Having a relatively secure job (and a lot of hard work, planning, and self-discipline) has helped pay for my home unit- of which I am merrily spending a squillion on prettying up.
