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.

He's ignoring me and I'm happy.

James dad flew in from Wisconsin. They are having fun and they get along so well. They are painting, fixing (taking apart and attempting to fix) things, going for walks, watching guy shows and just doing the male bonding thing. James has been surrounded by nurses, caretakers and women for most of the past month. I am happy to see my manly man being a man.
