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.

I look sixy on my teeshirt.

Dear Larry, thanks for the shirt, it's a good size for me. KJ had the effrontery to imagine it was for her! While she's out, I can confess that I don't understand the book that came with it -six words about "work"- what is that word? Hope you will enjoy the 66 fish I'm donating and looking forward to "Six words about Cats" Paws for thought there. Warm purrs, Indiana
