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.

I think I know who I am, or I'm at least in the process of figuring that out. But to everyone here my identity remains as much a secret as I choose. I know some people who six on this site. Ive seen them around my school, in my classes even, and I wish I had the courage to be as open as they are about their love for writing and what they choose to post here. It's inspiring.
