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.

Her misprint became excuse for celebration.

Our officiant wrote the wrong date on our marriage license, it reads JUNE 23rd instead of JULY 23rd. When we noticed, there was a brief couple of days we thought we weren't married due to the misprint...luckily it didn't matter. However, we did get excited about the possibility of getting married again. Our wedding was awesome.

So, we celebrate our "fakeiversary" on June 23rd for fun. Some people would be upset over the misprint of their wedding date, but Matt and I just use it as an excuse to celebrate extra.
