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.

Sometimes comment sections should be silent.

Sometimes the online comment sections following the articles about tragic events should be turned off. It is inappropriate to tout and spout unrelated opinions and speculations when people have lost family and friends. It seems that some people cannot control themselves enough to deliver a simple condolence. There is more to be said through silence. Have respect. Also I should just stop looking at comment sections when I read news online.
