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.

You know me better than "reality".

Canadafreeze got me thinking about this. How many people that we meet face to face actually get to see these ups and downs, these curiosities, these inspirations?
Our paths have intertwined, we have no need to belittle it. We are here and we care.

It sounds like we have created a special sort of brilliant "reality" here.
