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.

Mom has lots of in home-miles.

by JAD on April 4, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

She walks back and forth from the front door to the backdoor all day long. She can't get out because we keep both doors locked or she'll wander off. She has so much energy and that's a good thing because she doesn't seem to grow tired. How many miles has she accumulated? I couldn't tell you, but I will tell you that she has her own marathon right here at home. :)
