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.

I use my disability when needed.

And I'm not ashamed to do so. My phone, internet, and TV connections went out today through no fault of my own. I had to go over to my neighbor's home so she could call the company. They weren't going to send a repairman until tomorrow. I told them that tomorrow wasn't acceptable because I rely on my home phone for calls. Although I can use my cell phone, the small buttons make it difficult. Funny how speaking to a supervisory gets results. I'm back online!
