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.

My pain bleeds from my pen.

As a memoire on this site states, writing is cheaper than a therapist. I believe in that one hundred percent. I take my anger, rage, pain, my happiness, joy or whatever and write it down. It doesn't matter if it's through a short story or through a diary entry, anything works as long as there's release.
