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.

Learning to live without you here...

On May 21st, I placed my husband in an assisted living home as complications with the Alzheimer's made it far too difficult for him to remain in our home.
I am starting to sleep a little more soundly on the nights when the guilt doesn't bed down with me.
