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.

Her photo, but staring at myself.

I have a photo of my daughter as a ten year-old. She's in her school uniform and looking at the photographer with this curious half-smile. It's no exaggeration to say it's like staring at myself at the same age- her facial features, the expression on her face. If the picture didn't have too many damn pixels I'd post it on THIS website as my profile photo because this is EXACTLY what I look like.
