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.

Although often unhinged, I'm always hooked.

My dedication here wavers, but only because of time constraints. I would love to comment often, because I'm moved often. Just wanted to give that shout-out to those of you who take the time so frequently to comment on my memoirs. I want to give to you all that you give to me, because you really are giving me so much. Most days, if I have the time to log in and find that you've commented, it makes me feel I have something to give, other than putting out little boy fires all day long. Someday, I promise, I will be able to consistently tell you how wonderful you are.
