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.

She's 16, leaving on a jet-plane.

My oldest daughter leaves tomorrow for a 4 day trip to New York with her choir to sing in Carnegie Hall. I am so excited for her -- I remember my first parent-free (yet safely chaperoned) trip and it is one of my best memories of high school. I hope hers will be as well.
