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.

Maris61* is a really good password.

It has both upper and lower case letters, numbers, and a symbol. That combination makes it a strong password. It also affords the opportunity to make a statement about the wrongness of putting that asterisk behind Roger's home run record and leaving it there until after the man died. The primary weakness is that, as long as you are using the password, you can only make that statement to yourself. Well, I used this password long ago. Since it is no longer of password value to me, I'm now making the statement publicly. Don't use this as your password now. Everyone now knows it.
