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 signed up for San Francisco's Bay to Breakers, a 12K walk held in May. I've been training for this event and I'm up to walking 3 miles so far. I used to have a hard time staying asleep, but for the past few nights my head hits the pillow and that's all folks. No three a.m. Antique Roadshow with a side of memoir writing and reading for me.
