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.

Biofuels add more CO2 to the environment in almost all cases than they save. They add immeasurably to human suffering, reduce the people's ability to provide for themselves and increase the bottom line profit for those companies who are cashing in on the eco frenzy generated by lies, hype and fraud supported by modified datasets and the alarmism of corrupt scientists on the climate alarmist's gravy train of grants, donations and corruption.
