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.

With my children, I find my happy place, and they help me to dig up important things that get buried by everyday stressors. Like beautiful flowers, funny cloud formations, swings, bubbles, coloring and mac&cheese.

The newest faculty member's happiest discoveries to date are his toes, rolling over and bananas......

They are the best teachers in appreciating the wonders of the world, and I am taking notes!
