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.

Time got away. Missed my lunch.

The day was supposed to be a fun day. But this morning, we were trying to get some much needed projects done around the house, like fixing a broken heater, filing, etc. Before I knew it, it was 2:30. I knew lunch time was approaching, but I didn't dare say anything in the middle of fixing the heater! Hoping for an early dinner before I get really really grumpy. Note to self-- This shall never happen again!
