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.

Writing keeps you out of mind

by TheRealHer. on December 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is my resolution, write everything I think, feel and hope for. It's an escape to keep me sane. I Never thought I had it in me till you came and had me thinking all day long. You mind fucked me so bad, all I did was over think. So this is my way to leave my mind, to write.But.. NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT YOU, even though you think that. Believe me when I say this; some things are for you, but most are to keep you out of sight and out of mind. -Things I'll never get to tell you, and you won't see.
