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.

They shared stage, talked shared life.

I had the privilege of listening to President Jimmy Carter and his wife of 66.5 years, Josalyn Carter, share tidbits from their life tonight. What an incredible pair they are! And when I say "shared stage", I mean they split the time almost evenly speaking to the crowd. They alternated, one spoke of their history as a couple, the other spoke of their time in the White House.

I enjoyed my "Evening With The Carters" very much. This might make me read ... shudder ... history!
