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.

Fingers crossed, hopes high. Planets aligned?

My van MAY be repaired (they found the rare German part in Detroit)and my insurance company WILL pay for it since the damage was a result of spilled battery acid. I head out to retrieve it tomorrow, assuming it passes the "cold start" tomorrow morning. A decent resolution to what seemed like a hopeless situation. Or as I said in a Six long ago, "Another link in my charmed life."
