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.

Would tell lots of California stories.

by JAD on August 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When I watch the western shows I'm reminded of being about nine or ten and hearing my mom, aunt and others talking about going to California and making a new life for themselves, just like they do on the western shows everybody wants to go west. That was the beginning of my California stories to my sisters and brothers; they were my audience and I loved it. The stories were always different, I could change them any time and that was the best part. Just like T.V.
