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.

Lost soul-mate isn't an open position.

On the advice of my grief counselor, I have started socializing with our Bike Club after 8 months. As I do not have a lot of family in SD, it is comforting to be around people who knew and loved James almost as long as I did. Good therapy. However, recently, some members of the opposite sex are taking the fact that I am rejoining the world again as a sign that I am somehow ready to fill my vacant heart. This isn't like a job opening. It may never happen.
