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.

My fun summer fling with flourishes.

Really inspired by Sweet Pea. She IS a flourish extrordinnaire, with her beautiful character. She just shines. So, taking a cue from her, I shall attempt to live each day this summer with a sparkle and flourish.

Today, I'm rearranging my apartment and adding more embellishments, starting with more flowers as another sixer suggested!

Thank you Sweet Pea, just for you being you, Thank you ADHDean for sharing her adorable photos that inspire, and thank you to LotLess for the flourish arrangement suggestion! Stay Calm and Flourish On!
