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.

Remembering to not forget and repeat....

We are a very small farm in Western Pennsylvania dedicated to preserving American Milking Devon Cattle. Keeping heritage breed livestock is not just a trendy hobby; the strains of plants and livestock we depend upon in our industrial food systems are dangerously few and altered so they no longer thrive without our assistance. These old fashioned hardy breeds must not be lost... they have been the salvation of many in the past and will be needed again in the future.
