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.

It would be nice if something could stay in my mind for more than a few minutes (beside an "ear worm" song- "Warning by Incubus has been looping in my head for a week now). A story will come to me and hold my attention for a few days at the most, but then it decides to go and play in some forgotten field I can't find. I'm determined to get to the end of The Black School Bus... Here's hoping I can stay focused long enough.
