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.

Lately I've been relapsing into struggle as school as started up again. I've been showing huge improvement in indoor track though. I made it over the starting height for pole vaulting for the first time on Wednesday. I can do the hardest drills my coach throws at me. Lately, when I start to get stressed, all I want to do is go run; to go and clear my head. It feels so good.
