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.

Her hugs meant everything to me.

They were simple hugs of thanks, for a bookmark, but to me they meant everything, they turned a bad day good, left me feeling good, inside and out, and simply left me smiling when I couldn't find one. They basically ruled my world, even after the depressing film in 3rd block, which is saying something.
