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.

Sometimes stories come in handsome pairs.

Me and simondc. I introduced him to Smith sometime ago.

I got the first t-shirt (the one I'm nearly wearing) when I met Larry in December 2011. The second t-shirt was a gift for being featured member of the month August. I decided to share one with Simon.

Simon and I met last Christmas while visiting our hometown Santiago in the Dominican Republic. This picture was taken at my parent's place.

Simondc lives in Texas and I live in Holland, but our stories intertwine even before we were born. We've known each other for years and we both share so many roots and branches.
