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.

What do you want from school?

by daniellez10 on August 26, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

As I was preparing to leave for my sophomore year of college, my mother and father gave me two "talks." One I will not mention, the other was about choosing a major that would turn into a marketable career. Even though classes have yet to begin, I can't help but wonder if what I want from school is the freedom to explore or the opportunity to make a life for myself, and even if both are possible.
