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.

Is 6WM dominated by feeling types?

by thesagittarian12 on December 26, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This isn't a criticism (no, really it's not!), but this website is neck deep in empathic types. I've started frequenting what I would consider to be "thinking" type sites, and the contrast couldn't be any more stark. If I'm looking for a shoulder to cry on, 6WM is the ideal place for that. If I'm in the mood for crazy, brain warping comment threads, then I'll look elsewhere. As I said, it's not a criticism, just an observation.
