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.

Swim. Bike. Run. 1st Tri done.

Well, I finished my first ever triathlon and couldn't be happier. I had so much fun and beat my goal time. I placed 6th out of 43 women in my age group which I am very proud of, I was just happy to finish! I decided to start training for a triathlon to gain confidence and I can say I have gained much more than just that. This experience has been life changing. I can't wait for triathlon number two next month (which is a bit longer and more challenging course...yikes). Here's to new adventures!
