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.

My pets are animal version me.

For the record there's 4 animals in my house, but 2 of them are technically mine.. (well 1 is but the other one only likes me and my dad soooo)

Bearded Dragon: Izzy is really lazy and I guess afraid of heights cause he freaked out when he went on my shoulder earlier.. oh and he got stuck under his house thing...

Katniss the kitten: Is extremely clumsy... and eats a lot... And has every other animal in this house that's bigger than her, afraid of her
