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.

Six years ago, wistful went away.

May 2, 2006 Jen and I shared our first kiss. That moment, my life changed immeasurably for the better. All my adult life, I'd felt I was missing something; I was lonely in the midst of friends and family. Wistful defined me for love I'd missed and misunderstood. Her kiss awakened the sleeper and shook me free. And that was just the first kiss.
