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.

Tomorrow, San Francisco. I'm all smiles.

Tomorrow, 16:06 pm American time, I will be landing in San Francisco. I'm flying from Amsterdam.

I haven't seen my youngest brother for more than 2 years. And I will meet the miracle of my niece Carla. My brother and his wife were told they couldn't have children. They're high school sweethearts. She's 3 years older than my brother, and his one and only girlfriend. Carla is 15 months old. My brother's 40th birthday is in two weeks (and yes, I'll be there!).

I just bought my ticket yesterday.

I miss them too much!
