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.

My eyes aren't dotted, they're crossed.

For the past two days I've done nothing but type and design... Facebook posts, newspaper submissions, website updates, newsletter, brochure, numerous e-mails. I'm sure there's more. I've looked at a computer screen for more than 18 hours in the past two days. I can't see straight anymore. I'm taking a minute to soak, but then I've got to do it again. Just three more weeks.
