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.

Slowly outgrowing my Clark Kent complex.

Hiding your light under a bushel isn't going to make you happy, even if it quells others' jealousy.

As time marches on, my sense of (my own) mortality and urgency about getting my creative work being seen and heard is all the more acute.

Going to take this opportunity to thank the Smith community for being a group of wonderfully supportive, kind and funny folks. You've made a big positive difference to my life, even though we haven't (yet) met!
