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.

Mother's coming where her heart is.

After being hospitalized for eight days because of fluid around her heart and lungs, my 89-year-old mother has been discharged from the hospital and will be coming home later this afternoon (Wednesday, January 16). I'm happy my mother's coming home. Thank you all for keeping my mother and me in your thoughts and prayers.
