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.

catsmeow and cocoa on Sunday morning

Eat your hearts out, guys. Her pretty feet are outmatched by an even prettier face, as well as the engaging mind you should have already perceived. I could have sat across from her and sipped cocoa all day, into the night. But she and her canine companion have many more miles to travel. However, I now have a vision to accompany her ongoing six words. God speed, catsmeow.
