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.

Pregnancy: the only time in life (hopefully) when people will find it perfectly acceptable to ask you point-blank how your cervix is doing. Bring on the stupid questions, the inappropriate inquiries and the infuriating comments, followed by a game of Solomon Cuts The Baby In Half over who gets to monopolize on newborn snuggles.

Having babies would be so much nicer if my in-laws lived in Texas.
