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.

Old man. Pretty young thing. Hug.

Old man catches bus after work. Pretty Young Thing proceeds to chat-up Old Man on bus. Bus arrives at Old Man's stop. Pretty Young Thing insists on hug from Old Man before he alights from bus. Old man- being of sound mind and (sudden) good cheer- reciprocates. Old Man walks off into morning mist with grin on face. And they all lived happily ever after.
