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.

There are spaces between ordinary lives.

It may be in these spaces that extraordinary events occur. I believe they happen throughout our lives and show themselves, often, very briefly.

If we are aware these spaces exist, it must be possible to grasp and embrace them as opportunities.

We all want to shine ... somewhere.
