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.

Up the creak. Need a paddle.

My floor is very, VERY creaky. I don't see the point in getting my floorboards sanded and polished when some of them may need to be fixed or replaced. Given the floor is really 'common property', I figure our owners corporation should pay the bill for the repair work. Once that's done i'll be able to show a few billion dust mites the door.
