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.

Thought process reconfirms redneck gene presence.

D needed an extra hand when he was working on his truck. I went to change shirts because I would get a little greasy. I grabbed a flannel shirt, started to button it up, then hesitated and changed into yet a different flannel shirt. I didn't want to get my "good flannel shirt" dirty. The fact that I had a "old flannel work shirt" only confirmed my redneckness.
