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.

She's gone. I have her hands.

I lost my beloved Mother 2 years ago and it still breaks my heart. She was my best friend and I miss her terribly. When I look down at my hands I see hers. I always tell myself she is always holding my hands in hers. Love you Mother!
