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.

A six or two at three

Falling asleep at beddy-bye time has never been a problem for me. However, I remain unable to keep from waking in the middle of the night. But six words have a habit of waking then, too. So, I count 'em out and pretty soon . . . I'm down for the count again.
