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.

"Let's get together" memoirs inspire daydreams.

i love the memoirs about getting together (the most recent ones that come to mind are about forming a posse, having a progressive dinner/sleepover and having a movie-watching party) but i must admit they make me a little wistful. i'd love it if we had flying cars a la the jetsons or were able to apparate so that they could really happen :) i do plan on being at six wordstock 13, but i guess i'm just afraid that too few of my favorite memoirists will be there...
