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.

Another is memoir created by my boss overseas. They've hired me as their property manager while they are away. In the last few days, I've fixed a washing machine (woo-hoo!), a stove (another woo-hoo!), a broken drawer, and started to texture a wall. I don't know who is more impressed...me, the tenants, or my boss. Even the tenants keep asking where I learn all this stuff.
