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.

Challenged cousins to think in six

by jl333 on June 8, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My cousins are Visiting San Diego from the Midwest. It's not too often that I see them. We had breakfast together this morning and I was able to share SMITHmag with them. I think I've got them hooked. Before we departed, I challenged them each to come up with 6 six word memoirs each. I'm anxious to see what they come up with.
