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.

I'm too shy to be late.

When I taught I always arrived extra early for classes and meetings. I couldn't take lots of people looking at me at once. Once the classes and meetings started, I was okay. But I had to be there first in order to adjust to being in front of a lot of people!
