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.

Gosh, I wonder who that was?

I just had a funny little conversation via text with...someone. It's one of my cast for the show...I'm sure of that...but I have no real idea who. For most, I have their names in my phone so when they call/text, it pops up, and I know who I'm talking with.

But not all. hmmm....and it was indeed a quirky little exchange.
