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.

Finally found his letter to me.

When my brother died he left a generic note for all of his siblings, saying I'm sorry etc at the end he said there was a note hidden in my stuff for me and that I'd find it eventually, when the time was right, and hopefully when I was ready to read it.

I don't think I'm ready, but I found it today.
