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.

Progress, didn't cry until after lunch.

First of several celebrations of James' life was last night. Seeing the intense love and sorrow in our friend's faces somehow eased my pain. We laughed more than we cried, just the way James wanted it. We shared love, laughter and reminders of a joy we will carry forward for having loved James. That carried me through this morning/mourning.
