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.

We painted the town green today.

No, not a nod to St. Patrick's Day. Our city holds an annual Paint Your Heart Out event - the city provides the paint and we are volunteers, painting the home of an elderly, disabled and/or low income person. Our office has participated for the past 3 years. Hard work, good fun, great team-building, beautifying our city and providing the homeowner with much needed help in keeping their homes safe from the elements. This year, the homeowner wanted two shades of green, it turned out SUPERB!
