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.

Good friends help dig the hole.

by Monica_M on September 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Truly good friends are rare. I'm talking about the ones that listen without judgement, cry with you, laugh at you.

They go the extra mile. They won't just help you kill the people you hate or the ones who hurt you, they'll help you hide the body.

And they don't show up with bail money. They can't, because they're in the cell right beside you, laughing about the charges against you and saying "Damn, that was fun!"
