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.

Thank God for the Six Backstory!

I just left a comment on the Six blog post about ADHDean being selected as the October Memoirist of the Month. (Yeah, was that selection overdue or what?) As is the case with a lot of things I write, it was wordy. After looking over what I had written, I made an admission ... I'm wordy. Then I added a Six to finish it off: Six is really hard for me. I repeat: Thank God for the Six Backstory.
