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.

"Everyone is innocent until proven broke"

by Staraj on July 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Love him or hate him, the late Johnny Cochran of OJ Simpson trial fame/infamy provided us with a quote that all too often is "proven" true. Justice is for sale to the highest bidder, so it seems (says my inner cynic). Or put another way: Jack Wilson will indubitably shoot up the town for a fee. Unless Shane comes riding in to the rescue. For free.
