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.

Another politician in trouble. Imagine that.

We recently got a new mayor here in San Diego. Not only did he received hundreds of thousands of dollars that he "knows nothing about", but several women have come forward regarding sexual harassment, all the while he's engaged! The public is outraged, and now his engagement is off. I hope his now ex-finance runs far, far away from him.
