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.

Please welcome simondc. Another sixer friend!

We come from the same city. We both live far away from home. We have a lot of shared history. My best friend is one of his best friends. I went to college with one of his sisters. Our mothers are colleagues in the same university. He's a beautiful person, his wit is contagious and we both love writing... I'm so glad I managed to drag him here. It didn't take much convincing though ;-)

Check him out!
