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.

Forgivness has made all the difference.

My mother was a doctor and teacher first. Her children came last on her list of priorities. Forgivness was a long time coming...and worth the wait. At 90, with most of her mind somewhere else, she has become the loving mother we all yearned for as children...if only for the moments that we are with her.
