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.

His level of honesty and pure love blew my mind last night after we had one of those "weird" talks that couples normally avoid altogether or fight their way through. There was no yelling, no lies, and just calm conversation on a very touchy subject. A few days ago our tattoo artist marveled at how well we get along, he said we seem like old souls (and then he high-fived my boyfriend for having a hot sugar mama ;).
