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.

Everything is just a little overdone.

I think I just put my finger on what my problem with a particular co-worker is. Everything she does - whether it's her work product or the way she dresses - is just a little bit too much. And believe me, I'm a live and let live sort, so I'd imagine that a little bit to me is a whole lot to others. The latest thing is the abomination she calls a "wreath" which she has hung on her door. Enjoy.
