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.

Says I'm his girl next door.

My best friend took me out to shop for mittens, and a cute hat. In the driveway of my house he told me that I was everything he had ever hoped for in a women. He then presented me with a pair of earings he got from Italy, and told me that whether I feel the same or not, he wants me to know that he loves me.
