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 does happily married look like?

by canadafreeze on July 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I see so many couples who look like they are just putting in time with each other. They snap at each other in public, and often look like they'd rather be anywhere else but where they are. How long is forever?

I'm a romantic. I believe in love. I believe there are some people who can grow old together. I believe all this ...and yet, I don't see many signs of it. Am I looking too inward?
