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.

Ohmygod, Joan, you are killing me!

Hubby had minor surgery today. Carpel tunnel. Joan called every surgery center in town to find out where it was so she could sit in the waiting room with me (cuz I don't know how to talk to doctors). Surgery took 5 minutes, so, she missed it. Then she called to say she went grocery shopping for us in case I didn't think to have food in the house. (cuz I'm stupid). Wanted to know what kind of pain killers they gave him. I said it didn't matter because he didn't want them. She wanted to bring all her prescriptions over (cuz I don't care about her son). I am living as Deborah in "Everybody Loves Raymond".
