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 said Gaiman. He heard Diamond.

I was so excited to find that one of my literary heroes, Neil Gaiman, is going to be speaking nearby in July. I asked my husband if he wanted to go with me and he, quite vehemently, said "No!". I was irritated,until I realized he thought I'd said Neil Diamond... Needless to say, he's more amenable to going to see Gaiman. :)
