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.

Drunk Uncle Danny, Sexy Suzy bending over the mashed potatoes, Whining Wendy, Jokester Jack, Passive-Agressive Patti (often the MIL), Fabulously Fit Francie (we all hate her when she skips the damn pie), make sure she sits next to Overweight/Food Issues Olivia (Frets about how fattening the food is while packing it away).
