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.

Imagining marriage, thankfully no answer needed.

by TheAngstyPoet on December 7, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I dated this guy a few months ago, it's over but he's my go-to-guy for imagining married life, the guy I imagine during romantic comedies, and just everything relationships related. Does that sound crazy? Hell yeah but I like to think about that because it'll never happen. It's like imagining what being a superhero would be like. It's never going to happen but nice to think about.
