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.

America's Cup of Golden Gate History.

Today we were just checking out the old fishing boats in the SF Marina, when someone gave us free tickets to the America's Cup race for this afternoon...wow! Never saw racing so close up -- it's the first time they've ever had "stadium sailing" you could watch the catamarans racing so close to shore near the sea wall, with the GG Bridge in the background. Fun and awesome.
