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.

10-year-olds thinking they're in love. Ha!

Okay, I understand having a crush, after all, I am a teen girl. But what I think is stupid is all these little kids "dating" and "going out". Its dumb. Its okay to like someone, just dont try to date when you're in fifth grade! You dont even know what dating is yet! Do I sound mean or crazy, or does anyone get me?
