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.

Re-thinking major. I'm meant to teach.

by emily.m.123 on June 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've been contemplating for awhile, but I officially decided last night. I will no longer be double-majoring in psychology and creative writing, rather I will be double-majoring in creative writing and elementary education (1-6.) No decision has ever felt so right. This feels like what I'm meant to do.
