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.

15-year wedding anniversary. Still pinching myself.

by JohnBigJohn on May 23, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I married my high school sweetheart 15 years ago today.

She accepts all of my failures and weaknesses without them being used against me later.

My love is the warrior mother to my three boys. We would all be lost without her.

No matter how many scratch tickets come up empty or how many rejection letters I get daily I'm the luckiest schlep on the planet because she settled for me.

Marriage is certainly something you have to work on - but she makes work easy.
