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.

First day of James approved happiness.

This really is the first day of the rest of my new life. I think with everything that James and I have been through, Friday the 13th is a perfect day to kick it off. If there was a 13th month, 13/13/13, that would be most fitting our circumstances.
