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.

Popped a wheelie...flipped the motorcycle

Not on purpose of course! My motorcycle stalled. I kick started it again, gave it gas, popped it in gear, and the damn thing took off. I slid off the seat, somehow still holding the handlebars, and he bike ended up resting literally upside down. Twice, I've been spared now.
