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.

Does this mean free-range or hell?

My dad is applying for a new job within his company, meaning he'd be working 330 to midnight, whereas right now he gets off at 330. This means the only time I'd get to see him is on Sunday's (maybe) and I'd have to be home with my step-mom and her family all the rest of the time (who very much love yelling at each other)... unless they finally decide that I'm allowed to actually do something without getting 3 levels of permission...
