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.

Maybe. Doesn't look good. I'm still trying, but I'm getting too tired of emotional terror tactics, insults and refusals to see my side of things. The main problem is all the ultimatums...I've never dropped one, but suffered through at least five. Pretty soon, I'm taking my ball and going home if we all can't play nice. *long sigh*
