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 am continually perplexed, amused and dismayed, sometimes simultaneously, at the things people reveal about themselves, even here. We all have our prejudices, whether of the classic or quirky variety. I believe that many of us strive to be fair and accepting of others. I also believe that some of us are completely unaware of our opinions that by any other name are bigotry and prejudice. That and the spectrum of anonymity offered by the internet are the only explanations I can imagine for some of the statements I read. Like the famous emperor, they have no clothes.
