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.

Really Winter? An icy death trap??

by ShellDeFelice on December 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I always insisted that my baby daughter play in the backyard, so much safer, no cars, less chance of psycho strangers. Now, WTH is this??? Ice blocks hanging over the roof's edge just waiting for the sun to loose them onto someone's head?
Ahhh Winter, you are not my favorite. At least be straight forward with your perils!
