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.

Possible career change, optimist needs optometrist

Meeting with the HR person to discuss possible plan B options. I am back at work on a limited restricted basis. I am still in a lot of pain, and broken hearted with the possiblity that Emergency dept is going to be a thing of the past. Need a back friendly position that will still give me the joy that I have for career.
My doctor suggested I retire on disability. No way, not gonna happen.
