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.

Kind of digging the dark side.

For BD - decided that yesterday was the last day I held my peace, made peace or kept the peace at work. I have a terrible habit of trying to be rational, logical in tense situations. It's downright annoying and a whole lotta work. I've decided that I kinda like letting folks around me get all worked up without my 2 cents. If nothing else, it's become a source of amusement for me. I'm kinda diggin' it, if ya know what I mean?
