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 childhood treasures have you kept?

by Seraphina_Lullaby on July 2, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have a big glass cookie jar filled with trinkets from my youth--Oscar Meyer hotdog whistles, train flattened nickels and pennies, gumball machine lighters half the size of my thumb, Chewbaca Pez dispensers, and much more. It's always the first thing my nephews want to run their fingers through when they come to visit me every summer.
