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.

Years went by, deaths, divorce, dreams so unreal they even failed as dreams. Then one day I made it real. This was two years ago. There is more now. More solar panels, front porch roof, more batteries and windmill. More doing, less woulda, coulda, shoulda. Yes we get many double and triple, double wide rainbows over the house.
