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.

More sci-fi nerd than sappy romantic.

This morning my daughter posted two photos to facebook, one with a humorous Star Wars reference and the second with a syrupy Valentine's Day sentiment. Then she sat back to watch who "liked," who commented. She observed that all her nerd friends took note of the Star Wars post, while all the girly girls identified with the Valentine one.

Guess which one I commented on. :)
