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.

Anyone else with challenges in January?

I, hopefully, will finish my novel. I, hopefully, will get to direct my play in the theater, as well as play in it. I will do a short story on a similar site called 6 sentences, where I write one 6s a day for the whole month. I will also try to re-teach myself pantomime, as well as teach myself how to draw well, but first on paper, then on computer.
