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.

Cure for back pain? Sex apparently.

by MsKillie on July 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have a back injury that likes to pop up now and then. My chiropractor, my massage therapist and myself are quite close. Last week it came back full force and I've been trying to use the power of positive thinking to chase it away. Apparently, all I needed was a night of sack romping with the boyfriend. I bounced out of bed this morning with barely any pain! I bet he loved hearing, "Baby your sex is magic!!" this morning :)
