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.

Mom's face stares back from mirror.

I am surprised and pleased every time I look in the mirror. I look more and more like my mother with each passing day. She has aged well; looks more like a woman in her mid-sixties and not a woman who is seventy-*cough* years young. Thanks for passing your genes to me, mom!
