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.

Have to concentrate on this toast

by jl333 on December 6, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

No, not the kind you eat silly! I've been invited to a birthday party for my friend Marjie, and I was asked to have a toast prepared. Luckily, I'm not showing up with toast and butter...but rather a heartfelt toast. By the way, this is my first toast ever...and I would love any advice if you have any to offer as to how to get started. They will be compiling all of the toasts into a book for Marjie.
