A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

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.

Nod to HopesInPain ... cookie talk.

My daughter takes cookies occasionally in her lunch with a few extra to share. Home made from scratch cookies. Some will ask her where she buys them and she responds with "Mom makes them".

How can I deny a kid (even if I've never met them)the pleasure of a home made cookie.
