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.

It was always going to happen.

The inevitable has happened and my daughter has finally blocked me on Facebook. It was made clear to me right from the start that getting my daughter to accept a painful message was going to be difficult, and so it has proved. No matter what happens, the world will keep spinning and the sun will come up in the morning (I hope!) :-)
