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.

Stop being such a brat, please.

I was (yet again) put in charge of my step-sister for the day and making sure that she's ready for their camping trip and for school on Tuesday, she started being a brat to the point that I walked out of the house and told her to check her attitude... her response was "Why don't you check yours??"
Ugh I can't wait until she starts school again.
