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 #95: #SpringCleaningIn6Words

As our national clocks "spring forward," it's time for another annual tradition: spring cleaning. Is it time to dust off your bike or pack away your parkas? Do you give your place a quick sweep or delve deep into the garden? Ready to quit your day job, dump the dating sites or tidy another aspect of your life? Finish the phrase, "My Spring Cleaning" by adding three words and tell us about your seasonal renewal with #SpringCleaningIn6Words.

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 #SpringCleaningIn6Words when posting your Six Words to Twitter and Instagram!
