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.

When's it ok to say NO?

Right now it's 12:20am. Hubby is picking up his cousin at the airport. It's a whiteout and on any other night he would have been asleep over an hour ago. She just asked him this favor this afternoon. She won't drive herself to the airport because then she can't drink on the plane ride home. She's a lawyer, single and can well afford a taxi. This is the 5th "last" time he's supposedly doing this.
