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.

That's a first...didn't finish breakfast

It's a rarity that I would ever leave any food on my plate. I'm just not feeling hungry as of right now...can't explain it...and it's almost time for my first lunch (10:00 AM), which I think I'll be passing on today as well.
