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.

Rant alert.
Hubby's sister is SO freaking busy, even though she doesn't work and her kids are pretty self sufficient. Her to do list this week was going to the dry cleaners. Hubby and I said we would handle Mother's Day, making all the food, could she bring a side dish. She said fine. Today we find out that Joan called her and asked her to please make everything. Clearly I am incapable. When will I stop caring?
