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.

Time #1: To my English class during my senior presentation, happened completely opposite of how I expected, and everything went great

Time #2: To my mom. Her reaction was also better than I expected but then again I wasn't really sure how she'd respond, but she's accepting and supportive.

Time #3: To my best friend who's currently deployed. He reacted exactly how I hoped he wouldn't: I told him and he instantly got offline with no response. I really hope I didn't just lose him.
