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.

Living on the Compound with family.

My parent's home is nicknamed The Compound, because of it's size and the amount of people who live here. It's a great network of support- no matter what you need someone is around to help! We are a great bunch of funky hippies. Check out my blog for some photos of our beautiful gardens and stories of our adventures!
