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.

A whole lot more like me...

My favorite poet is Shel Silverstein. My favorite poem by him is called "Underface". It goes like this-

"Underneath my outside face
There's a face that none can see
A little less smiley
A little less sure
But a whole lot more like me"

I love that poem because I can relate to it so well. It's almost as if Shel Silverstein read my mind when he wrote it.
