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.

I still kept going despite death.

Two years ago, one of my most inspirational relatives had died. I promised myself at his funeral that I would keep fighting my troubles no matter what happens. It is two years later, and I have achieved dreams I never thought I could achieve. I always keep a picture of him on my dresser to remind me to keep going.
