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.

I'll take that as a compliment!

Dearest Teenager, When you parked next to me at the school, you parked so close that I could barely open up my door, much less sqeeze through to get into my truck. I'm assuming you thought I was super skinny. So with that being said, I'll take that as a compliment. And while your at it...learn to park your fucking car in between the stupid white lines! Sincerely, Skinny Bitch.
