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.

Bonding with teen while watching anime.

by MsKillie on March 14, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When I want to get my son to open up and chat with me, I ask him if we can watch one of his favorite animes together. He loves telling anyone who will listen all about the show, the characters, and the costumes he is making. Inbetween tales of fictional battles, I sneak in questions about school, girls, and whatever else I want to talk about. We always have a great time connecting over something he loves.
