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.

If love could keep them safe.

Fully half of my family lives in Tornado Alley. My sister and brother and their families, my son and his family, and my mother, all live in the Dallas, TX, area. From where I live on the east coast, I can only watch the news and pray for their safety every time nature wreaks havoc on their world.
