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.

Creation has no comfort zones. Period.

As a writer and an artist, I often hit the pause button when my style or approach feels stale - when the same old images appear, the same descriptive passages, or the same design. I get frustrated with myself, so I'll dip into a new genre or use new materials. Anything that takes me outside of my box of comfort is a good thing. I always want to create with a vision of something more.
