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.

brought her mind back
she forgot her place in the world
the question, should never have been asked
she comes off the slow-sloped hill, where she had gone,
looking for a place to make a call
she said his name as she watched a crescent moon catch a star
he answered quickly, the sound of his voice filling every cup,
diverting every wake, drowning her
soon she disappeared again, the doorway to his heart too wide,
she fell inside.
