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.

Traction, better for feet than necks.

Had my first session of this today. I've been asked several dozens times how it was - fine is my answer. Fine has to be the answer, everybody seems to think it is wonderful. They've had it chiropractors and it just pops their neck right into place. Well, I think it sucks. I've popped tylenol, developed an addiction to Salonpas in addition to the meds that I normally take.

Worse than that, if it doesn't work it is on to needles in the spine guided by x-ray or surgery. I'll stick with the rack thanks.
