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.

Someone has effectively gift-wrapped what others believe is a photo of my grand-daughter sitting on Santa's knee shortly before last Christmas. I've had comments like "she's a little you" and "she's a --------(insert my surname) alright!" in relation to the photo. Personally, I can't see myself in her face though, obviously, others can. As far as I'm concerned, she's gorgeous no matter WHO she looks like.
