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.

Ten inches twice in four days.

Another major snow storm due for my area. I don't mind shoveling a bit of snow but this is overboard. Some of the drifts are 18 inches. I'm tired of snow ... as soon as the kids are grown, I'm heading south !
