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.

Could pull trigger and sleep well.

We experienced unspeakable evil here last week. A woman was leaving a mall with her 10 year old daughter. A man came along and she was forced to drive him to a remote area. She was tied up and had to watch him rape her daughter. Then he stabbed her to death. The daughter escaped. I want him dead and I would be fine making that happen.
