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.

Deleted shows I saved for him.

When he was first hospitalized, I saved our favorite television shows to watch with him.

photo my darling James, Christmas. I just realized he ended up with a "Antigua" Blue convertible as an adult. He totaled it coming home from the lab in the rain (November, week before Thanksgiving, as if we didn't have enough). His first time "driving" and his last time driving were in a blue convertible.
