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.

It's time that I flair up!

no, that's not a typo :) i've been inspired by Dragonflower's quest to do the best she can with herself and her life. i'm going to (try to) call the mongrel of self-doubt to heel, do my best in each role given to me in this life and strive to make the most of the gifts that i have. some new clothes for spring and summer might not hurt, either....
