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.

What makes you who you are?

I came across a question the other day, "Who would you be if the thing that defined you was taken away?"
First you have to realize what "defines" you, and then you can decide who you would or could be if it somehow is taken away. And then to wonder: is the thing that "defines" you really worth the definition?
