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.

Missing home. Missing independence. Missing freedom.

by JenaK on March 7, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We've been without a car for the better part of four months. I hit a deer in November and its been, well, eye opening. I am at the will of those that offer to help, on thirty time, in their schedule, in their pace. I just want my freedom back. I want to remember how it feels to go somewhere just because I want to or because I can.
