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.

I never had credit card debt. It can double what you pay for something. Ask yourself if you really want to spend $200 on that $100 sweater. 30+ years later, I am sitting quite comfortably. Set a budget and automatic withdrawals for retirement. If you need help, find a professional or friend/family who will sit down with you. I have helped those who have asked.
