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.

Training is tough. But pushing forward.

I've never been any sort of athlete so this is all new. I've never had to force my body to push past the point it wants to quit. This goal of running the 5k in June has really put me in unfamiliar territory. It's only been a week and I'm starting to see slight improvement. I'll keep looking forward and keep my eye on the finish line.
