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.

Great dog, severe arthritus, loving desperately.

He came from the human society at about 5 years old. We loved him immediately. We didn't know he has severe degenerative arthritus of the spine and at some point someone shot him. We are keeping him as pain free as possible and loving him as much as we can. Time with him will be shorter than we had hoped.
