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.

i have a dear friend who does not live close enough to suit me. she's the kind of woman who makes you feel better just being in her company and who can make you laugh even when you think NOTHING can. we have front row seats to see josh groban in concert this summer, and it doesn't even conflict with six wordstock 13! i won't say "i can't wait" because in my experience of time i know the whole weekend will be here and gone in a flash, but i will say i am sooo jazzed!
