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.

Most brilliant anti-smoking poster I've seen

by NumbrOneAunt on July 2, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

saw this YEARS ago and i've never forgotten it. photo of a woman who (from what you could see of her face) was quite attractive. half of her face was normal but the other half was completely covered with disgusting gunk. across the bottom of the poster was written "if what happens on your inside happened on your outside, would you still smoke?"
note: i've never been a smoker - i don't claim any virtue for this; it's just not anything i ever wanted to try. any sixers out there who are working on quitting or who want to, you have my very best wishes for your success!
