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.

Ten years work, only one muscle.

From my nine year old niece Savannah, who is almost 10.

"James meant so much to Savannah, as well as myself. A strong male role model in Savannah's life. Someone who takes care of themselves and exercises. Recently she said that James has so many muscles. She added, "I don't have that many and I have been working on it for almost 10 years."
