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.

I'll miss the big little things.

by emily.m.123 on August 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Family dinners. Spontaneous Target runs with my best friends. Waving at passing neighbors. Afternoons in the front yard. Hardcore badminton at dusk. Local ice cream. My own shower. Dog walks.
I leave for college on August 1st, and I'm only starting to realize just how much I'll miss. That's not to say that I won't have these things again, they'll just be less frequent and more of special things than regular occurences. Something to look forward to and really appreciate. I've also started to realize just how big these little things are and how different things will be in just four short weeks.
But hell, I'm excited. MCLA, here I come!
