#Bettertoday. TWLOHA asked, You answered, in Six.

To Write Love On Her Arms, the amazing nonprofit organization dedicated to reaching to those who struggle with depression and addiction, helped us wrap up out Six-Word Festival On Twitter on a positive, uplifting note. At 4:00 pm. @TWLOHA, asked you all to finish the thought:

“I’m better today than yesterday because…”

The Six-word responses that followed were truly beautiful and inspiring, and made enough of a splash on Twitter to get the attention of AlterNet, McSweeneys, and O, The Oprah Magazine. 

Here were some favorites (Six, of course) from the editors here at Six-Word Memoirs:

And last but certainly not least, we can’t resist including this response from Laura Mayes, who has been consistently sending out some of our favorite Sixes throughout the festival:

Glad to hear it Laura, you’ve certainly helped make ours. Keep on Sixin’.

Big thanks to TWLOHA for doing such a great job judging our final prompt.
