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.

Savored first Summer Shandy today. Aah...

Summer Shandy, a lemonade-style beer has been produced since 2007 by the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. in Chippewa Falls, WI. And now it’s going national. Try it, you might like it!

Short for "shandygaff,” the Summer Shandy by Leinie features “a tangy citrus character with bready malt notes and hop undertones," according to the company. I describe it as delicious!
