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.

Wrote my story without flinching once.

My book This Same Small Town in Each of Us, released October 30, 2011, a collection of memoir, prose poetry, and flash fiction, grew one publishing credit by another until eighty-two credits persuaded me it was time to leap over the fence and run with it. My story came alive one laugh at a time, one tear at a time.
