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.

Greeting essence underneath frantically crafted facades

I've met a wide range of people, from movie stars to sharecroppers, CEOs to city street people. The education, physical looks or abilities, profession or job, money, life experience, style and possessions, types of homes if any.. when that's all we know about each other, we don't know anything about each other. We can only sense who we are... maybe find out only when someone must decide between the authentic or the cover.
