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.

Diary-keeping always seemed so much effort.

by NeilSlevin on August 23, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Yes it is, l8leigh; yes it is.

Over the years, I've made one or two attempts to start "diary-keeping", but the best I could ever stretch to was to keep a log of whatever training or exercise I'd completed over a period of time- no thoughts or feelings involved!

"Diary-keeping always seemed so much effort"- until now: now Six... sees so much of my life and world; more than most do- and me and my Writing are all the better for it.

Thank you, Six...!
