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.

Looks like concrete. Feels like eggshells.

This is how I feel 14 - 15 hours a day at my current job. What the "f" did I do to deserve this. Oh, I applied from the job and accepted their crappy offer.

I think I now know how people feel when they are in a crappy loveless marriage that they are having a hard time getting out on.
