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.

Would we be 'real life' friends?

Not me, necessarily. I was speaking with someone recently about how there are people you can get along with alright online that you probably wouldn't hang out or get along with in 'real life'. Do you feel that way? Do you have internet friends that you think you probably wouldn't talk to if they were your next-door neighbor?
