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.

Fell asleep after panel, missed presentation.

This morning I was on a panel at a youth group where their kids could ask anything they wanted to know about the LGBT community or experiences or whatever. After that I was supposed to come home for a couple hours then go do a presentation to the parents... Well I fell asleep and didn't quite make it to the presentation... that makes twice in a week. Whoops!
