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.

"Why can't you be more like Jamie and Ashton? They would've never pulled this crap on me."
I'm not them, that's the point. I'm fully aware that most of my family wishes that situations were switched, that Jamie lived here instead of me and that Ashton was still here instead of me. But situations aren't swapped, as much as we wish they were.
