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.

College countdown. 5 days. Conflicting emotions

by PrincessLief on August 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Freshman year of college starts in 5 days. It will be the first time I have spent a long amount of time away from my twin sister. I can't wait to get away from my parents and to work on who I am without being dragged back to "who I am supposed to be" by people I know. I'm excited to work harder than I have ever before, but am afraid of screwing up. . . lots of thoughts and all of them seem to conflict with another.
