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.

Always leave room for the cat.

Often when I work at my laptop, I sit wrapped in an old quilt against these days of winter chill. But even as I tuck the folds around me for optimum coziness and comfort, I must arrange a smooth, even section beside me for my feline friend.

It's good to be a cat, eh?
