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.

Sweet, storied life, one year later.

Thank you SMITH community for your sixes each and every day. This has been the most intense and amazing year of my life, very much because of the sweet boy pictured above in front of the Six-Word Memoirs you all made for him, adorning marymc's painting. That this has also been the year SMITH has become its most active and thoughtful community yet is somehow not surprising. We love you guys, and we love our Lukas sixes! My how we have grown.
