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.

Taking Jeremy on bike ride today

by jl333 on October 2, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This will only be my second outing with Jeremy alone. His parents have a tandem bike, but because Jeremy doesn't necessarily have the balancing skill, it would be on the person riding up front to do all of the balancing. Jeremy can peddle though. So problem solved. Instead of riding the tandem bike, because I do not have the strength to balance both of us, I'm taking him down to our beach to rent a four wheel bike. I think they are sometimes called Surry bikes. I'll post pictures later today.
