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.

Eyelid floodgates unconsciously switched instinctive revolution.

Light bulb or candle? Heart rending image within: word play?
A nod toward simplicity - things quickly turned too "normal," disenchanted in a world brandishing a vale of tears.

Rain or shine, grounded re purpose. Glanced Earth, the temples around; the body laid down steps, formed within the dirt, felt the wind as a forgiving blanket, unsigned the watch machine - are the lovers of this world satisfied with little? Is greed satisfied when it tries to restrain itself?

Stand up straight?
