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.

"Of all people, you deserve it."

My mom's cousin and I have gotten to know each other in the last few years and have become close. She and her husband now live in Texas, too, and visited recently. We email each other. Nancy wrote me about our time together earlier this month, saddened by my mom's condition and glad that I'm trying to live my own life. Her email with the above words made me smile, even if I don't always believe it.
