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.

After twenty-five years I'm still enchanted.

by "the princess bride", that is! can't believe this movie is 25 years old already! it's my favorite movie because everything about it is pitch-perfect: the casting, the writing, the way the cuts between the story and the reality of the grandpa reading to his grandson were done...there isn't one thing about this gem that I'd change. and yes, i am one of those people who can quote multiple lines from the movie. :)
