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.

The Eating Season. Halloween through NewYears.

by Solstice22 on October 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is what my daughter and I have always called it. People start bringing in delicious treats to work. Magazine covers are so beautiful to look at with the food art, I just want to eat the magazine! The coffee places smell more delicious than ever, if that is at all possible. I love the feast for the senses that this season brings.
