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.

I wrote some haikus last weekend.

Since I was unable to get online I spent some time writing haikus:
People are funny
they never do as they say
talk is very cheap

Wife calls me Lassie
my loyalty can't be bought
no more dog houses

Does life reflect art?
I always thought life is art
I may be crazy

Technical troubles
like death is a part of life
Nothing is perfect
