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.

That made it worth it all.

We were laying here in bed and I receive an unexpected text from Sweet Pea. It was surprising because she should have been in bed at least an hour ago. When I open it I laugh out loud. It is a screen shot of a web page that says that some turtles breathe out of their butts. That had me and Emily rolling a couple of weeks ago. We couldn't stop laughing. Her sending that text, as silly as it was, meant the world to me. It meant that she was thinking about me at that very moment. That fact made all of the irritating thoughts of the day just fade away. I love that silly girl.
