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.

Lasagna on hold while I diet:(

by oopsalittle on July 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've recently started a diet. I've been really pretty good at sticking to it. Today I made lasagna and gave it away. My partner didn't get any either (he wasn't too impressed)and his ultimate sacrifice is that he had to drive the lasagna tray over to my friend's place for their dinner. My friend and her family got a hot dinner, I got to cook (which I love), my partner's a diabetic so I did him a favour as well. It's a win - win situation!
