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.

What are you carrying right now?

At this moment, I'm carrying my keys with a small Fenix flashlight attached, a Gerber pocket knife, a Zebra F-701 pen (modified so it's all steel), a Citizen EcoDrive watch, my wallet and my iPhone. What would Sherlock Holmes say about us if he only had our personal effects to go by?
