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.

Computer problems. Limited access. Feel alienated

I still can't access SMITHmag from my home due to computer problems. I can only post or comment from the library or Starbucks. And I Don't see the problem fixing itself anytime soon unless I buy a new router, which I don't plan on doing anytime soon. Only SMITH is blocked...I can access everything else on the Internet. Go figure.
