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.

Hit play; pause, but never stop.

Side Note: I didn't know we could put a back story to these things until five minutes ago. Okay, so. During the summer, when everything's quiet and everyone's off living their lives, I often feel like I'm put on "pause", and people hit "play" only when they have time/a need for me. The feeling saddens me sometimes, but I know that no matter how many times people hit play/pause, I will never, ever hit "stop" and it helps me find the comfort in the quiet lonesomeness.
