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 escape in their 2001 Escape.

by emily.m.123 on March 29, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My favorite part of any given week day is early-morning. My ride picks me up around 6:45 and she's my favorite person to talk to, my inspiration, and selfless role model. I trust her more than most -- in a way it's like she's my super-cool long-lost aunt or something. For 15 minutes every morning and every afternoon, my world is at peace and I have someone to talk to and listen to, which is crucial at such an insane time in my life. Early-morning and afternoon rides are an intermediate escape between the craziness of home and school and life, and I am incredibly grateful.
