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.

Larry, a Grimm. We, his characters.

I find that I have these ideas of what many of the writers here are 'like'. This challenge is to compare a member to a storybook character. Do not feel limited to Grimm Fairytales, but rather any famous character. Feel free to explain why you chose a particular character and what attributes made you match them to the member.
