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.

Banjo eyeing me. Bad banjo. No.

Picked up the banjo years ago. Put it down because I have no talent for it, but, Lord, it was fun. Watching the documentary "Give Me the Banjo," and I don't like how my 1968 Fender is looking at me from the stand in the corner. Leave me alone, banjo. I should be writing.
