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.

My biggest bully stems from within.

"Don't shush your inner voice. It's who you really are."

Well quote, I have something to say to you. My inner voice is quite the analytic witch. I hate her. She's mean, and critical of everything I do... and she bullies me all the damn time. If I'm my inner voice, well, I'd be one self-critical ass. Good bye inner peace. Hello doormat.
