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.

Nunca me he sentido tan abrumado

Over the last few weeks I have started applying to colleges and picking majors. I have realized how close real life is. I feel as if my childhood has flown by and I took it for granted. When people used to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up it was if I had all the time in the world. Now the question has changed to what are you going to be. The decisions I make in the next few months will change my life forever.
