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.

Packing the Jeep for weekend adventure.

The 3 Musketeers are taking many long weekends this summer. We have to save up our PTO for the big family adventure this winter, but have found plenty of places nearby to camp, hike, bike, and tour. Life on the road is my kinda life!
