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.

Didn't finish lunch...would you believe?

Okay, before everybody starts really thinking that I didn't actually finish my lunch, it was just a thought that popped into my head...if I didn't finish my lunch, I highly doubt that anybody would believe that. And just for the record, I did finish my lunch today. In fact, I can't remember the last time I left food on a plate.
