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?
I am a Georgetown University graduate with a Master's degree in Journalism and my biggest dream is to bring people together for a change. Moved by people fighting to make a difference, to make something better, to never stop looking for more, I hope to reach my dream and make others feel the way I do when dreaming of a better future for everyone. Better future where we can find answers, move things forward and improve reality. Where we can fight unfair, understand ourselves and accept others. My wish is to discover life where dreams come true.
