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 was 7 when you married."

...said the young man I was chatting with the other day. He asked how long I had been married, and didn't think quick enough to dodge the question. Fortunately, he didn't ask how old I was when I got married....eek.

So much for maintaining my status as cougar....think I might be aging into raggedy old alley cat.
