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.

The best T-shirt never made says...

"They can't hear you (on the front)... but I can (on the back)." Somewhere there would be a baseball bat and the deaf school's name or arrows that pointed to my children. People don't think and I'd love to have a shirt that saved them from the stupid remark they're about to make. I'd be saving them from themselves.
