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.

No longer defined by my footwear.

See, I had this compulsion to always wear my totes hardcore combat boots. Ordered off eBay, they were the shit. Except they weren't - they were actually the shit in literal terms, meaning their material was disappointingly cheap.
Anyway, it was during "that phase", where people would look at the hair in my eyes and my boots, and most would scowl.
But I felt like I needed an image, so I took what I got. And now, I mostly alternate between my TOMS and Doc Marten boots. Hurray.
