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.

Days are long...years are short

Wish I could say this observation was original, but a friend imparted it to me a few years ago. Since then, I repeat it to myself on an almost daily basis, now that the kids are out of the house and (sort of) on their own. How I remember those days that seemed interminable, days that evolved into years and then just flew by.
