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.

Dog's decided to dish up children.

On a whim I let Rooster out to play in our nine inches of snow, with my son and some friends. Even being the dog's first exposure to sledding, he immediately discovered that his role was that of spoiler. Anyone using the round snow disk had it yanked out from under them and carried off by an overly-enthusiastic German Shepherd. Not everyone was completely delighted but the adults certainly enjoyed the show.
