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.

Alone tonight. So much to pack.

In between Little Man's naps I've gotten some done and I know that most everything is ready, but the little last minute stuff is everywhere and so overwhelming for me. This is the part I am really, really bad at. I wish my best friend were here. She is so much better at getting everything in order. This is where I fall apart. Help. =(
