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.

Cousins adjusting better than dad's girlfriend.

by BecomingLuke on July 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Since I'm going to be watching my cousins every day now, this weekend it was explained to them that my name is now Logyn and that I'm a boy, instead of "cousin Tona"
They've already caught on and keep calling me "cousin Logyn"

While my dad's girlfriend (not calling her my stepmom cause of certain instances) is still refusing to call me by the right name or pronouns, even when it means outing me to complete strangers.
