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.

Six thousand words; millennium of Sixes!

My 1,000th six!! I only joined the SmithMag community in November, 2012. I've averaged 6 or 7 sixes a day.

More importantly, I've really enjoyed the writing and the thinking that inspired it. Thanks to this whole community for all the interaction, feedback and inspiration. Some sharp cats and birds here (pardon my old school, intercultural slang). What a lovely addiction sixing is!
