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.

Life? On the one year plan.

by DynamicDbytheC on September 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I schedule all my medical tests and appointments the month of my birthday (September, which I share with Larry). After three different cancers, four battles (one recurred), I am finally up to annual PET scans. When my scan is clear, I know I can go one more year of life for sure. This is my service plan in life. I have no choice, I can't make a commitment to a longer plan.
