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.

Don't take your socks for granted.

I guess my feet are pampered. I regularly soak, lotion, and pumice them. I keep the nails trimmed and polished, and in the winter time, I put warm, dry, clean socks on them. If there's a thin spot or a hole, I toss them and buy a new pair. No big deal. Socks are cheap, relatively speaking.
I changed my mind this morning after listening to a documentary on the homeless. I'll never take my socks for granted ever again.
