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.

Nearing a thousand sixes, then disaster!

by Kharis on June 29, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Had penned nine hundred and eighty sixes as Kharis Jo, then suddenly I could no longer sign in! Must have inadvertently hit a wrong key somewhere and have had to reactivate an old identity, rename myself and transfer my photo. Am busted back to 226 memoirs! Oh well, at least my contact me link now works:)
