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.

Chocolate cake. A breakfast to champion.

by canadafreeze on October 26, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Sometimes, a piece of chocolate cake and a cup of coffee is the perfect breakfast.

Here's how I get my perfect bite: A sip of coffee. No cream, no sugar, just dark, and rich. Let the coffee warm the inside of your mouth. Fork a good mouthful of chocolate cake, preferably with chocolate fudge icing (sorry, JL) into your mouth and let each crumb be savoured. Follow each bite with a small sip of coffee until the plate is clean and you're feeling ... ... satisfied.
