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.

Just when you think you heard it all. I've been joking all day that I really need tougher skin...you know, like Rhino skin. I'm just a softy. So as a way of diverting my mind off my list of things to do for my upcoming event this weekend, I decided to type in Rhino skin on EBay. Who knew? They sell rhino skin. Ha!
