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.

I spy with my many eyes!

This is one of our classic family pictures. It was taken fourteen years ago....my daughters, son, and grandson. None of them wear glasses, so they borrowed from other family members for this grand photo op. Even the four-year-old knew he was required to act ridiculously. I especially like the "Woman's World" magazine my son chose for his reading pleasure. Just last night my daughter texted and asked me to send her the "glasses picture". There was no doubt what she wanted.
