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.

A teenager's mom in 5 days.

Oh LAWD, when did THAT happen?? Feels like yesterday I was smelling that soft baby hair, bargaining with him to give up his soother and teaching him to pee on trees. Now he's taller than me and we're having weekly cringe-worthy discussions on girlfriends and not sneaking out of the house. I'm making up stories to scare him out of doing anything he shouldn't be doing and I'm now re-learning math and scared to come across crusty socks when I'm doing laundry.

Ooph. I don't think I'm ready.
