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.

Once the unimaginable. Now the unmeetable.

I try to imagine what meeting her would be like. Would it be like being in the presence of a supernatural being? A goddess, perhaps? Would it be like coming face to face with myself, or the closest thing I'll ever get to that? Or would it just be like talking to another person who just happens to look like me, but who also has a stack of my DNA and personality swimming around inside her? The whole idea of her continues to freak me out.
