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.

I'm backward about my Southern Living.

This is the only publication of any kind that I read in reverse;back page first. Every time. Rick Bragg's column is on the back page. It's better that their best chocolate caramel pecan pie recipe. Better than their best travel tip. Better than a fool proof method to kill an ant colony without getting bitten to pieces in the process. Maybe even better than the $2 off coupon for family size Bisquick. Better than their best peony planting tips. Definitely better than the sure-fit sofa slip covers:-D
