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.

Mom, thanks for reading to me.

One of my favorite memories of childhood is reading with my mom. She read "The Wizard of Oz" to me when I was 5 years old. The movie scared me, but the book amazed me. The best part was having my mother’s comfort and undivided attention. It was wonderful.
