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 picked up my son from swim practice today. While the guys were in the pool, someone took his clothes: his boots, pants, shirt, even his underwear. Fortunately, his cell phone and swim bag were locked in a locker, but he had to walk out into 18 degree cold in basically nothing so I could drive him home to get clothes.
