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.

Grumpiness inevitable when Internet problems strike.

I admit it *sobbing* I'm a goddamn junkie. The Internet should just be called the Oracle. There's this vast other part of ourselves that lives there in virtual space, and when disconnected from it, I feel like I'm suffering from missing limb syndrome. I have to physically remind myself that physical reference books still exist and that I can still use a pen and paper. But pre-posted sixes on paper seem half-unreal or something. Anyways, All Hail The Mighty Interwebs! Gods of the new Aeon.
