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.

I live my life on whims.

It took me a five seconds to decide to purchase a dinosaur onesie online so I could play Godzilla by myself on those idle nights. Therefore, my hall mates will see a dinosaur roam the hall every full moon. Why a full moon you may ask? I'd like to tell you, but there is no correlation whatsoever to these life decisions I make. Good day you, and have a wonderful life.
