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.

Think about now, not the past.

We spend way too much time worrying about what's going to happen in the future. Or what has happened. We can't. The more we do, the worse we stress. The more we can't sleep and get what we need. We need to learn to think about the now. And not miss out on what's going on in our lives. With our friends, families and what's going on in the Earth around us. Good or bad, because one day. We're going to miss it. And all the wonderful experiences that we've gained from it. Thank everything around you for the now. Weither you're thankful at the moment, or not.
