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.

Dad's just jealous of our forts.

After asking Jamie if she was going to help us make our blanket-fort (that took over a little more than half the basement)
My dad decided to come downstairs and ask "What are you turning 6 this year??"
We decided that he was just jealous of our awesome fort. :-)
