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.

Want to be where he is...

by AQScott on September 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is partially dedicated to my Mom, age 87, who lost a lifelong friend this week...and admitted to me that she's more envious than sad.

But it's also mine...I don't know where my next love is at this very moment, but if he's somewhere, I'd like to be there too.
