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.

“Let’s watch all the peep shows.”

There's a really sweet DVD series about Peep, a little chick. My son really liked it and I thought I'd get some DVDs from the library for my 3-yr-old nephew and I to watch. So, when I said the above sentence out loud to him, I had a good laugh about my unintended double entendre; hope you enjoy it as well.
