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.

Mother-daughter relationship's a misnomer with us.

I love my mother dearly. With that being said, I still find it difficult to connect with her after 35 years. We have little in common and she has always been distant. Of course, I am not the only one she acts this way around. She always gives off an air of disapproval, which to this day is bothersome.
