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.

When I came upon this website, I didn't realize that I would get so excited about crystallizing my day, my thoughts, etc. in 6-words and become a part of a community. So, when I signed up I took a quick look at my photos and impulsively chose one that appealed to me that day and would also fit the frame and voila! That's how a highland cow--his name is Hamish--that I photographed while visiting the Isle of Skye became part of my 6-word persona.
