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.

Friendship blossomed when my friend died.

by Amapola on October 9, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm amazed at how much connection and love you can feel with your friends when a friend dies. It's been 15 days since my friend Martín passed away, but in every moment I spend with my friends, I'm fully present and absolutely determined to hug, just like I did with Martín. In the past 15 days, I've re-discovered the power & significance of friendship.
