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.

Frozen with fear, need to chill.

Getting ready to sell our house. Afraid of so many things. We have a perfectly fine home, and we are going to fix it up, sell it ( hopefully) and build a new one. Worrying about all the stuff that goes with it, including what to do with my mildly Autistic son.
