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.

Don't twist arm. Hug me instead.

by Contemplative on August 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Close friends and family, once they gain some knowledge of the illnesses that their loved ones are attempting to conquer, hopefully, and with some gentle, and often necessary and overt prodding, will finally ask that all important question:

"What do YOU find most helpful?"

Well, "Don't twist arm. Hug me instead." is my six word response to that ever awaited six word question.

All my best... and many hugs.

-Ms. C.
