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.

The spiritually deceased creating physically deceased

Yeah, the California standoff led to this one. However, I would never say that such a situation "inspired" me. And it's hardly a week since the one in Alabama. These self-righteous assholes are not only worrisome, they're wearisome. Get some help! Go fishing! Start attending Wednesday night bingo! Join the French Foreign Legion! Meditate! Find a positive outlet! But stop your cowardly ways! Peace out!
