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.

SixContest #34: What Did You Do This Summer?

As the summer season slowly sets, many take the time to look back on their adventures. Children relish in their new memories, while those who are older compare this summer to past breaks. For this SixContest, we ask you to reflect on your summer vacation. What wild stories or new encounters can you share? Or tell us where you wish your summer had taken you. Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please submit only one entry per comment.


This SixContest runs through Friday, 8/29 (two weeks!) until 3:00PM ET. Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages (remember to tag @sixwords): facebook.com/sixwordmemoirs | twitter.com/sixwords | sixwordmemoirs.tumblr.com
