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.

Last hand written, stamped, licked letter?

by Vapor on May 2, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When's the last time you actually wrote a letter, folded it, stuffed it, licked the envelope, stamped it, and sent it through that good old US Postal Service? When's the last time you got one? Birthday cards don't count! Well, perhaps they do... The last I can recall was 20-25 years ago when my siblings were in the military.
