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.

Being framed by my illness, honest!

by FaeNotMyName on July 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm recovering from an eating disorder, and while things are rocky on my dedication to a full recovery some day, I AM working my butt off (not literally) to remain healthy and relatively sane at this point in time. However, it doesn't look good when I'm still losing weight, despite the fact that I think I'm eating a lot. I feel better than I was last year, but it feels like I either can't reflect that, or it just isn't ever enough.
