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.

Flat tire deflated my good day

We had a regional meeting for Relay for Life today. It was an extremely long day. The meeting alone was 5 plus hours long...not to mention 45 minute drive just to get there. We came out of the meeting with enthusiasm, only to find that we had a flat tire! We had to call the tow truck for service and had to wait to have a spare tire put on.
