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.

SixContest #90: #HopeIn6Words

Albert Einstein is credited with this forward-thinking wisdom: "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." For SixContest #90, we're ringing in the New Year with a four-letter word: H-O-P-E. Tell us how you keep hope alive in exactly Six Words. Whether it's as simple as snagging rockstar parking or as important as finding a cure, what gives you a boost of optimism or keeps you pressing on? Get your new year off to a positive start by sharing the Six Words that give you hope.

Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #HopeIn6Words when posting your Six Words to Twitter and Instagram!
