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.

Watching credits roll on amazing summer.

Just what the doctor ordered. Sailing everyday with my best friend. Boy talks with my 'big brother.' Cliff jumping. Bonfires. Being accepted as 'one of the guys.' Hammock sleeping. Night swimming. Star wishing. Pushing out of my comfort zone. Soul searching. Life realizations. Finally, it's all okay again.
