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.

After a few pokes and prods about my absence from Six Words, I'm finally plunging back in. Life has been insanely busy, and a few things had to give. Thanks to my friend from across the way (that would be a hop, skip and jump across the hallway), I'm punching out Sixes again.

Quick update:
• The kids are both taller than me.
• I'm still dating the man I met seven months ago.
• I haven't moved or quit my job.

The rest will be revealed in Six.

Hugs, everyone! You have been missed!
