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.

I found my best friend soul-mates.

This is only a small part of my group of friends at school... I love these super gals a whole lot, and I don't know what I'd do without them. These are the kind of friends I waited my whole life to find, and it was definitely worth the wait. Though I've only known them for four months, I have no doubt that these incredible people are my lifelong friends. Best friend soul-mates, I like to say. We are quite close, we cuddle while watching Netflix, help each other through mental breakdowns, all-night study sessions, boy problems, and we've definitely had our fair share of fun adventures. I'm eager to get back for more.
(I'm at the center of the group here. We've yet to get a picture with all of us.)
