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.

Made edible blood. Love being weird.

I make birthday cakes for a friend's children. Her son wants a chest cavity with realistic lungs and heart. Today I'm making a paper mache ribcage to put the cakes in and I made cherry sauce to be the blood that will ooze out of the heart when it is cut. I'm having way too much fun with this.
