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.

Childhood toy you wanted... never got?

Ok....this will reveal how old I am, but when I was a kid I really wanted one of those 'Lite-Brite' things. My folks were convinced I'd forget it was on, and that it would then overheat and burn down the house...so no Lite-Brite for me. Also, mom was annoyed by how the name was spelled, lol. (So simplistic when compared to today's toys, I know!)
