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.

Chasing city dreams between the snowflakes.

My accomplices: one grown daughter, four fun-loving, wine-drinking gal pals, three wild teenagers. Our goals: Radio City and the Rockettes, the tree in Rockefeller Center at night, and the holiday store displays of NYC. Our window: from now, as the northeast digs out from under various amounts of snow, until Sat. when the next storm is predicted.

Can we do it? Stay tuned.
