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.

Thanks for showing you don't care!

I live with my grandma right now (I have for the last 7 or 8 years) but my dad just filed for full custody of me and she was served on Monday. Yesterday she was hell bent on fighting it and making me stay here until I'm 18 or until I graduate; today she just flat out told me to leave whenever because it's not worth the fight to keep me here.

I'm so bloody confused!
