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.

Sadly the smartest is now me.

What I have seen this week I didn't think would ever happen. My grandma is now slow; her wits dulled. Just last year she could beat me handedly at Scrabble, now she can't remember what she said 5 minutes ago. I hate the looks of sympathy from her caregivers; I can't stand this. If anyone but God was responsible for this I would make it my life's purpose to exact revenge.
