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.

Below is a safe place to repost an old memoir that you wrote that you would like to recycle. Something that still holds true, despite the passage of time since you first posted it. This way a newer sixer can see a personal favorite of a more longstanding sixer, and longstanding sixers can see something that a newer sixer wrote before they were on the radar.
