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.

This Irish lass hates green t-shirts.

I went ice skating yesterday on University of Penn's campus. There were people in green everywhere. There was hail yesterday and people were still walking around without jackets so they could show off their green clothes.

Everybody is not Irish on St. Patrick's day. Not even St. Patrick.
