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.

You know, so they could follow me around and play awesome background music as I do stuff throughout my day. How amazing would that be? Maybe I'll call for auditions.

Boss: "Dean, I'm a little concerned about your work performance lately..."

Me: "Sorry, hold on a sec while Bobby grinds out a serious solo on his axe... Thanks, Bobby! Sorry, what were you saying, Boss?"

Boss: "... Just that it's awesome to have you here, Dean. We all love you. Carry on."
