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.

Attempting to enjoy my "otherness" today.

No matter how hard I try, I cannot even pretend to care about the outcome of the Superbowl. I usually feel quite alien, since everyone else seems to really, deeply care. This year, I'm attempting to embrace my difference. So far my success is limited, after all, it's not like it's the Stanley Cup or anything.
