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.

Daddy turned 77 today...! He's adorable.

by Amapola on April 10, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We're thousands of miles away but this photograph (taken in 2010) shows how it felt talking to him on the phone when I called to congratulate him today... As we said good bye, he said "I adore you". And yes, I miss him *much* and I love him to death and I have tears in my eyes as I write this. Happy birthday papi!
