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.

Found myself in Boston, missing Texas.

So I recently moved to Boston for college, and I feel more at home there then I have in my 18 years of being in texas. I came home for the holidays and I realized everything I want to be and everything that I love about myself occurs only when I am in Boston. Scary Thought.
