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.

Haven't passed* in weeks. Kinda disheartening.

*passing is when someone looks at you and assumes you are the correct gender. For me that would be people seeing a boy when they look at me, not a girl. For the last 3 weeks all I have heard is she/her and my birth name.
It's kinda disheartening because before I didn't have to try, and now I have to try so hard and I'm still not being read as male.
