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.

Sweet dreams of nothing ,my friend.

by DickInk on June 1, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My childhood friend stepped into the front of his store, grabbed his head and collapsed. His brain filled with blood in the ambulance. He was DOA kept alive artificially. I called the hospital the exact moment his family gave to go ahead to turn off the respirator. I spoke a few words to his expiring body but he was already done. I said dream the sweetness of nothing my friend.
