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.

"What would your father think now?"

by StephanieTor on June 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My mom wondered this aloud last week. I don't know the answer. I hope Dad would be saddened about Mom's condition and my separation from my sister. He should be alive to see me trying to make a life on my own.
