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.

Drowning in love every single day.

by jennyb on May 6, 2009   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have a 14 year old daughter and a 1 year old son. I had my daughter when I was 16, and my son 2 weeks before my 30th birthday. They are the most wonderful things that have ever happened to me, and I could not live without them. I cannot imagine anyone loving anything more fiercely than I love my babies.
