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.

Solitary karaoke night. Barked at myself.

In my country Japan (and maybe in some Asian countries as well), Karaoke Boxes which consist of many, individual rooms are becoming more and more popular. Now some people go so far as to sing all alone in Karaoke Boxes. And I'm one of them. With nobody by my side I love singing "Eleanor Rigby" by the Beatles. "All the lonely people, where do they all belong?"
