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.

Trotting alongside bigger dogs these days.

I've always found myself fitting in, or thinking I did, with others older than me.. Like even here on this website there's a teen sect, but it's not nearly as interesting to me as the normal sect. Maybe it's the feeling of being out of my comfort zone that I strive for, or maybe it's just how I've dribbled upon things in life. I just get scared of growing up too fast sometimes. That's probably my biggest fear in life. So maybe this isn't the best for me, but I can't help it I guess.
