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.

I drink, AA people still inspire.

Once every couple of months, I go to local AA meetings to support one of my closest friends, who's often asked to speak to members. I'm not a member, but the gatherings are always inspiring to me, and I'm always very, very proud of her. She's come a long way in a matter of a few years and AA is very important to her, so it's also important to me.
