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.

Who the hell is this guy?!

I was walking out of the pharmacy when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around to see a face I didn't recognize and thought "Who the hell is this guy?!" He introduced himself and proceeded to tell me how he noticed me at church on Saturday and thought I was cute. He noticed me walking out and seized the opportunity to ask me out for coffee...I’m still in disbelief! Ya never really know, do ya?
