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.

When I was younger, it seemed that I always had to save the world RIGHT now.

"What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!"

If I could go back in time: I'd have gone to school; put off relationships; saved money; taken better care of my mom; done more to improve myself; and looked out more for my family.
