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.

She said I was worth it.

She was my favorite person in the entire world. We used to talk every day. Then we didn't talk for almost a year. Last night we had dinner. We're going to try to put the past behind us and let go of the fear, pain and anger. She's still my favorite person and she's more than worth it, too.
