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.

Bonus: Mini-mentoring opportunity presented itself today.

A young college student arrived at the school this morning for a short visit. She's possibly interested in becoming an interpreter. It happened to be one of those rare days when I could sit down and talk to her about the profession and the craft of interpreting and then let her observe me working. Typically, it's feast or famine on Fridays, but today she got a real look at what an interpreter does. She's a bright kid, motivated and smart. I hope I provided a good first look at what I believe to be one of the nobler professions.
