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.

what aspect of the shared experience here at SMITH do you value most? when i first joined i was thinking of the writing aspect and the challenge of expressing myself within the limit of six words. what i've found is a true sense of community, and that's been a truly wonderful bonus! so many people here are brave (because they have to be just to get through their everyday lives) and yet solicitous of others. So tell us what you value most - no six word limit! :)
p.s. thank you, larry!
