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.

Sixers, I need some lottery numbers!

Fellow word lovers and story tellers extraordinaire!

I have a dream. I dream that one day I'll be a stay-at-home mom again. Cooking, cleaning and going to school by day, attending kids' sporting events and helping with homework at night. The only way this dream will come to fruition is if I win the lottery.

I ask that the first six responders leave one number. I will play these numbers every day for the next month. If I win anything, I will give each of you that provided numbers a piece of the pot. Does that sound fair?
