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.

He's psychoanalyzing me. I'm psychoanalyzing him.

My really smart guy friend and I started talking about psychoanalysis and somehow made it into a competition to see who could be more accurate on our readings about each other. So far he totally gets me and calls me an easy read and I just figured out that my friend's a total blank slate. This is gonna be a challenge.
