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 think as I plop my my butt in the plush grass. I just get comfortable and a group of teens run by me laughing and chatting. They must be in training. I sigh and lie back into the cool grass...

$&!@!!! Fire ants!!! ;-P

More yard work, less paper work.
