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.

This is my daughter. My brain, though it's been a full two years since I first spotted her on Facebook, still has trouble completely accepting the fact that I did actually find her. Perhaps one day she'll let me explain things in person and, hopefully, iron out some of the wrinkles from my (sometimes) clumsy and (often, sadly) insensitive messages. Who knows.
