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.

Intimate Irish songs. Simply beautiful storytelling.

Every tune had a story. Every song told its brightest details. I love the humor, and how easy it is to laugh even if the story is full of sadness. I'm still immersed in that realization. It's so passionate, and simple, smart and even silly that it makes me want to become the muse of an Irish troubadour. Too bad the singer was wearing a ring. But that's another story;)
