A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

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.

Together, we sounded like an army

I've always loved singing, but I have never been any good at it. So, when I saw a flier for a youth choir meeting at my church, I was stoked to finally have my chance in the spotlight, doing what I love, but not quite as a solo. Yay!! I convinced a few friends to tag along and we attended. Maybe 100+ youth between the ages of twelve and eighteen attended, and together, we sounded amazing. It was so stong and fun and astounding! Cannot wait untill next practice!!
