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.

Cat almost died. Healthy once again!

by jl333 on December 28, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

For the last 5.5 weeks, our cat has been extremely ill. We've literally nursed her 24/7 all these weeks. We are up every two hours feeding her. We thought we were going to have to put her down. Nothing short of a miracle, she's back to her old self as of Christmas Day! I now feel so much better. You'd never guess that she almost didn't make it for the last month!
