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.

Incredibly rich and penniless. Welcome, happiness.

My financial situation is rocky at the moment. And I firmly refuse to stay angry or distressed about it. This attitude helps me find the little hidden treasures of life. I realise that I don't need a single penny to quench my thirst for finding that simple image or gesture that transforms the ordinary into unforgettable, memorable beauty.
