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.

Six words you wished described you.

Ouch, awkward sentence! Total take-off from CF's describe yourself in six...we are all looking for self evolvement vs. self involvement, right? Well...maybe some more than others.
What words are you attaining to become? Or, what character descriptions are you hoping to grow into?
I have way more than six...
