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.

Happy like a ripe Friday avocado.

The only waits that feel longer than one for a watched pot to boil is an avocado to ripen and for Friday to come. When both of these happen at the same time, you get a sense that everything is coming together, and that everything is going to be alright, even if you still have an eye on that pot.
