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.

(That's 59 to most of you;)
It never fails, every year there are morons out on the lake who think they are invincible, sat in their ice huts and driving their pickup trucks across the not-so-frozen lake. What really burns me is the emergency response people that have to put their lives in danger to rescue these morons when they go through the ice.
