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.

"Very early results" aren't results, people.

One of the most annoying things about election coverage is the inability for media pundits to just WAIT. They have to talk about something, so what they end up doing is spouting eighteen plus hours' worth of twaddle until the real results are available. Therefore, I tend to listen to my music and talk about pretty things on Tuesday, and check the results on Wednesday morning.
