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 have (nothing) good to say.

More often than not, I sit here and think of the words I use. Do they matter? Do they make a difference? Are they valuable, kind, useful?

I dwelled on this thought for far too long today. It took a long walk and some fresh air to clear my head and realize that I do have good things to say. It's just all in my perspective of how I say it. I simply need to remove the negative.

I have (nothing) good to say.
