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.

High and sweet, she softly sings.

Sweet Pea. She doesn't know anyone is around, and really doesn't care. When she's going about her ten year-old business she hums and sings, oblivious to her surroundings. Her voice is naturally pure and strong; visitors are sometimes astonished at the quality of it. She simply sings because it makes her happy and keeps her mind occupied and it feels right. That she always feels this way is my prayer for her.
