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.

Still traveling on a single fare.

I have a NYC token that has been set in a bezel. I wear it as a pendant. Each time I wear it, I wonder just how many other people used this very token to go somewhere. And, although tokens were taken out of circulation years ago, when I wear it I feel like I am still traveling.
