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.

Love literally ran right into me.

Waiting for a mutual friend of ours at a restaurant, I was told by that friend to look for my unbeknown-to-me future-husband-to be. I was walking outside, not recognizing anyone, when we literally ran right into each other at the front door. It turned out we were the mutual friend that we were each told to look for. One thing led to another and we've been un-separable since. ;-)
