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.

Priorities on hold...now we're scrambling

The event chair decided to go camping, along with another committee member the weekend before our event. We scrambling like crazy now to pull this together, when I feel the event chair should have been around last weekend so that we weren't scrambling these last few days. Plans are falling through, and we need nothing short of a miracle to pull this off. Priorities seem a bit backasswards if you ask me.
