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.

Don't forget about j's and x's.

When children learn to write the alphabet, especially in cursive, they're taught to dot their i's and cross their t's. That advice has become a familiar phrase about paying attention to detail. Well, although J and X are less common letters than I and T, a truly detail-oriented person will make sure they're finished appropriately as well.

(Speaking of cursive, I write capital T's and F's so that an F is basically a T with a dash through it.)
