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.

The bar was no longer there.

I used to love going for an after-work drink to the Windows on the World bar at the top of the World Trade Center. I'd arranged to meet some colleagues there the evening of September 11,2001 but of course, by the time evening came, the bar was no longer there.
