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.

Therapy...pure and simple. pushed by friends to become me. timid and under-confident for too long...soooo many people saw something in me that i was unable to see. slowly i am coming to see that there is a person here, a person with a voice and opinions and yes, maybe even some talent! i am on a journey to find the lost me, and take my place in a world that fascinates and inspires me....i am ready to find out what it is that they see...and make it the me i am meant to be.
