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.

Periods of unemployment can be exquisite.

I'd been in sales 16 years when a set of family circumstances possessed me to take a leave of absence and a four year old foster son.
When I was ready to come back to work they'd done away with my division. There was no job for me to go back to.
Now I'm a teacher and coach at an alternative high school and I live the 'find something you love and that you're good at and you'll never work a day in your life' dream.
