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.

Bad timing we just couldn't hook-up.

Talking about jl333. She tried so hard for us to meet during her trip to Louisiana. We were just a few miles away and my commitments wouldn't let it happen. She was so sweet and understanding about it; I kept reassuring her in a sense don't give up on me. We will meet one day. Louisiana just a skip and a hop away. (not literally.)
