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.

Beautiful day. Finally feeling well again.

After more weeks than I care to remember, I woke up feeling well today. Gone is the sinus infection, subsequent cold/cough, surgery and subsequent e/r visit. Lived through family and work stress and today is a beautiful day outside, it's a sign that it's time to enjoy myself and look towards May. March and April were a wash out for me, but the future is bright.
