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.

Cat had breakfast in bed today.

Literally. Out of the blue, our cat isn't doing well. We took her to the vet and the vet said she has liver disease. She's barely moving. Complete 180 of her usual self. She likes to sleep under the covers of the queen size bed. This morning, she had breakfast in bed...to weak to get out of bed too eat.
