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 thing seen today: new lamb!

by Raven_OKeefe on March 24, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

every morning during lambing season it is one of my jobs to go out before sunup to check for newborn lambies -- a task I think of as The Sun Almost Rises. most days it's a cold and thankless chore, but this morning I was greeted by a brand-new little life, a still-wet lambie, white boy with adorable black markings. he made the sun shine for me even before dawn!
