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.

Historical event. No one to share.

The Pope is resigning, Daddy. Second Pope in 600 years! And I have no one to discuss it with...Remember when he was elected? We were watching the ceremony together, passing jokes on the grandeur and comments on the election. Now you're not with me to discuss it. I know I have mum and friends, but we would talk about things like this for hours on end, making mum furious that we were not paying attention to everyday problems at home. Same with the football Woldcup Dad. I didn't watch it, it held no interest for me. Three years since you've passed, and I still miss you so much!
