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.

Love sending presents to friends abroad

...started with my first French penpal when I was in 9th grade. I even send homemade cranberry bread and date-nut breads. (Lord only knows what condition they`re in upon arrival, but my friends always graciously tell me that they`re delicious.) I remember the first time I sent some breads to a friend in Finland. I asked the postal worker if it was permitted. He hauled out a manual and spent 15 minutes checking international postal regulations. (The customers waiting in line behind me must have loved this!) Anyway, buon Natale a tutti quanti !
