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.

First rejection letter, a real writer!!

by ChutesLadders on March 9, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Just got my first rejection letter, which I'm sure will be the first of many. Because- I've been informed- that's how the literary world works. I've put my work out there, realized it isn't the end of the world to get rejected, and feel like I can do it again. Thus, real writer!! Plus, I think this gives me legit rights to look pensive in coffee shops and bars while I chew on pens and think :)
