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.

We're one and nothing at all.

Side Note: I didn't know we could put a back story to these things until five minutes ago. Okay, so. This is how I feel about my best friend. I've been in love with him for all the five years I've known him, unrequitedly, and this was the only way I could explain to him how I was able to ignore my feelings for him and still be his best friend. I tried to tell him that it didn't matter what he said or how he acted around me, I didn't associate any of it with my romantic feelings for him. They were there, despite having no direct correlation to our behavior with one another. Nothing affected them, but they were there: one and nothing.
