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.

Stressed? Listen to some disco music

by Staraj on July 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Some extra time pressure at the job lately. Waiting to unwind. So tonight, while running an errand, I put in a ‘70s disco CD. Oh sure, we called it insipid music back then (and most of it was). Nevertheless, it served a purpose, and still can.

Admit it, some of the lyrics aren't THAT bad. Plus at night, no one can see you singing along at the top of your lungs, as you mess up the words. Who cares? Burn, baby, burn.
