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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Who wants to exchange holiday cards?

by _Miracle on December 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A few of you are on the list. I celebrate Christmas but if you have a different tradition I'd enjoy celebrating with you! The bulk of my cards go out tomorrow and this thought just came...a "little" late I know.

I'll keep sending until next week.

Post here or private message.

Do you know someone who could use some holiday cheer?
