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.

Empty hand scarier than bad results.

Going for lab work and a PET scan because of some lumps that my Oncologist did not like. I am not scared about the results, a bit too beaten down to really care. But, if I have to get bad news, I am sad and scared that I won't have James to hold my hand through it all.
