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.

Best birthday present: boss supports promotion.

by Amapola on July 9, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Today's my birthday. Today I had my yearly evaluation with my manager. The review was very positive and he promised to support my promotion from 'lecturer' to 'senior lecturer'.

After 17 years of teaching in college, this means a great deal to me :-)
