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.

"Ummm, time to public parent now."

said my 15 year old son.

We were at a restaurant and a couple little girls about 5 and 7 were running laps around the restaurant, climbing over booths and squealing like little girls do. Their parents were oblivious to them. I told him on their next lap I would. They stopped before they lapped on more time.
