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.

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?
The Rev. Marcus is a rogue scholar, writer, angry liberal and designer. His novel, Rorschach's Ribs is available in hardcover and paperback. He is also the author of "Nobody Puts Swayze in the Corner: the Tao of Swayze" which raises money for the American Cancer Society. When he isn't writing or cursing the government under his breath, he's fronting the seminal Gothic-Americana band, Strawfoot.
