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.

Months ago, I posted "First exhibit. Small gallery. Scared stupid(er)", and the number of supportive responses I received was beyond heart-warming. The show was tonight, and I'm happy to say it was a success! Thanks so much to all you sixers that showed so much support when I really needed it!
