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.

Feeling like anti-Midas after golden move.

He's so cute and soulful, that I had the courage to take the initiative and show him that I really like him. It's the first time in my life that I do something like this! (and believe me, at age 43 I was feeling quite proud of my Olympic self-confidence!).

It's been forever since our last contact (at least so it feels). Still didn't hear from him.
