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.

Human kindness, greatest gift of all!!

Been a tough week at my house. Drama of my own eclipsed by sons problem. Trying to do all I can to help in a situation not really sure how to handle. Giving all my love and support but still worried! Words of support from fellow sixers and friends priceless!!! Helped me keep my chin up and reminded me to pass it on! A little kindness really goes along way!
