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.

Ate buffet, made me feel sad.

by Bigben on February 6, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Was having a bad day. Had a tire blow-out, was fighting with my wife, so instead of going home I turned to what I've turned to much too often (I weigh over 300 lbs); food. So as I sat alone gorging at an over-priced, sub-quality, Casino buffet, I felt like I wanted to cry. That day food failed to bring me joy.
