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.

So, my biological daughter's mother has unfriended (Facebook) me. That in itself doesn't bother me, except that it makes the likelihood of contact with my daughter even LESS likely than it was previously- if that's possible. This was never going to be easy, but I had no idea it was going to be THIS difficult.
