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.

Thanks snow blower guy. Some...

I was helping a friend dig her driveway out. We still had about a quarter of the driveway to do, but were getting tired. We had done enough to get her car into the garage and for her daughter to park on the driveway, but not in the garage. We were calling it an evening when a young man from a couple doors down came over with his snow blower and finished the job up for us. She offered some cash, but he said no thank you.
