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.

Am back from moon's dark side.

Since Friday before last, I have not been able to directly access Smith Mag from my home computer. As many of you know, I no longer have a computer at my place of employment since my retirement on July 31. I finally figured out that I could get in through a proxy site, but it was very inconvenient. Thinking it was a server problem with my ISP and cable provider and knowing that I was switching providers yesterday, I bided my time. The new provider is in place, and as I suspected, the problem is gone. Hooray! I'm back. Hooray! So are y'all.
