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.

Now I'm the permanently unstable one?

by Layne on November 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I was talking to one of my friends about how much work I have to do today and she said "Well I'll leave you to it. I'm here to talk if you need me." Yes, I have been pretty down lately but I don't like that its apparently become a characteristic of mine. My friends even posted pictures of them hanging out without me. ...Am I really not fun to be around anymore?
