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.

Baby girl's sick; Mama's love flares.

I'ts 6pm and we have been up since 3am. Little has a headache, fever, and maybe strep throat. We've had a day full of visits to barf city including one at the tire store (two flat tires on Sunday...don't ask). I love her so much in this moment my heart feels heavy and achey in my chest.
