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.

The mental image I carry of myself is decidedly younger than the one that greets me in the morning mirror. In the right light, with just enough makeup, I can see me, but just barely.
I believe that we age according to the life we live. Pampering definitely shows up at 50, but so does heartache.
