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.

When I'm not writing poetry, I'm making jewelry. When I'm not making jewelry, I'm writing poetry. There is a restlessness inside when I am not creating. I use stone bead jewelry making as my creative art therapy. It uses a different part of my brain, and then when I go back to writing, new words and images appear on the page as a random gift. What is your art therapy?
