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.

Annual red- letter day edges closer.

My daughter turns 25 on 12th March. On that date, it will also be 2 years to the day since I left my initial message to her on Facebook. It's usually the most painful day of the year for me but, given I never expected to have evidence of her continued existence past the age of about 6 months, it won't be as painful as it has been in previous years.
