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.

Not allowed to say his name.

I'd give my life to hear him say mine one more time. "Grandma come here" his moma just a hollering for him to get in there to clean his scars and give countless injections never missing a beat for 4 years to make his short but well loved life the best any child could ever ask for. I'm sure one day I will hear his parents say his name and let me put his pics back up but it's my name I miss most about Derringer."Grandmaw come here"
