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.

Not edgy enough to score dope.

I drive by the area and can spot them all, lined up or in a huddle.
One of the places is near my bank so of course I try most often to use the bank across town.

It’s a bit ironic, my foster family used to manufacture and I was a dealer in my teens and junkie for awhile in my 20’s into early 30's. It’s a good thing, I’ve been sober over 12 years and I can tell by the sketchy lot of ‘em, they don’t have ice/meth here anyhow.
That’s one way to stay clean ;-)
