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.

Crazy former co-workers: MissManage and MissInformation.

Many years ago, I worked in a restaurant where the drama was never-ending. A friend and I always said we should write a sit-com about it. Two of the teatured characters would be the owner/manager, who would surely run the place into ruin with her lack of food service know-how, and our resident gossip hound, who knew EVERYTHING about EVERYONE...or made it up if she didn't.

True story.
