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.

I read stories everywhere. The world tells a lot of stories and it would be nice to read 'em all.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
I would love to talk about who I am. My aspirations, dreams. Anything we can talk under the sun. As long as it defines life inspiring stories.
