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.

Don't write a memoir about Loon.

by Believe on January 26, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have noticed, as I'm sure you have, that we all have our own voice here. I often find myself scrolling through the timeline without looking at who has written the memoir, yet, more times than not, just knowing.

The challenge here is not to write a memoir ABOUT another sixer, but to write a memoir AS another sixer.

Write the memoir, and then forge the sixer's name.
