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.

These late night Sixers are mean!

They make up stories about you and spread them on the internet until they go viral and there are memes with you posing with porn stars. Then you get arrested, and your mug shot becomes your new Smith profile picture. And you are never featured again. Then you have to become a porn star for real so that you can support yourself and your children.

Then you spend years trying to prove that you are innocent, but nobody will Believe you.
