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.

anger wastes energy, live softly serene

This is my most peaceful place and there is nothing like my Kindle, my coffee and warmth. It centers me to be a spectator to serenity and God in nature. It's like living in a treehouse from up here. I have wasted too much of my life in anger and try to live today as a softer soul.
