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.

Never too late for overnight success

by LetTheWolfin on September 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Inspired by marymc's memoir about clients coming out the ying-yang (note to self: use that wonderful expression in conversation)

I wrote another six a while back, 'Takes a decade for overnight success' but this updated, perhaps more hope-lined, version is that it is indeed never too late :)
