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.

Hope comes egg-shaped. Handle lovingly, gently.

Mama Muscovy duck abandoned these two vessels of potential when our long-eared 93 pound dope chased her off. She left three, but one was empty. These two have us filled with breathless anticipation. Amazing how new life in the shape of new plants and hopeful eggs deepens your appreciation of each moment.
