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.

Friend was nominated for a Tony!

My friend, Carrie Coon, was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for her role as Honey in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Amazing production! It originated @ Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre where I saw it. The entire cast made the move to Broadway with the production.

Isn't it wonderful when talented people who are also smart and funny and kind have great success in a profession they love. I'm so excited I'm jumping up and down!
