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.

Crazy is life recipe's mystery ingredient.

Ever have that dish that has one "secret ingredient" that you just can't place? You're not sure whether it makes the meal or ruins it. I liken crazy to that. I sometimes think life's crazies add the perfect amount of unusual flavor, but at other times I think they need to just pack their shit and go away.
