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.

My house is home and hideout.

I don't have cable, Internet service or a radio in my house, and it makes my home my safe haven. I don't have to hear Christmas music until I'm ready, no sappy Lifetime movies, no endless drone of a world gone wrong, no children fighting over who's next. Home sweet home!
