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.

When did you lose your RELIGION?

'Organized', that is, as opposed to your most inner beliefs. (That's if the reader has any, and I'm not saying that tongue & cheek. Remember there are many people, including scientists, who believe in 'Nothing', so I guess that belief merits respect too (?) I admit though that I always crack a smile when I hear renowned quantum phyicist Stephen Hawking tell the world that he believes that 'Nothing' is actually what created all that exists, did exist or will exist in the Universe. Read his atheistic opus 'The Grand Design' -presumably his, not God's.)
