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.

Can't find a place to be comfortable at inlaws.Hubby is sprawled on bed with our dog,other bedroom is covered in stuff that maked "Hoarding" Tv show look tame. The heat is set to inferno. FIL is sleeping in recliner.(So no TV) I finally came back to the computer room and heat bill be damned I opened the back door!All of my family is deceased, so coming here while his is alive, and smiling through gritted teeth is the best gift I can give.
