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 am I not laughing, too?

I don't find stupid movies funny, but I often feel like I am the only one. I hated Bridesmaids--don't find scatalogical humor funny. I don't find dumbness funny. I don't find people getting hurt funny. Yet, I think I have a good sense of humor for wit, word plays, irony, and other smart humor that does not make fun of others or depend on body functions.
