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.

we said pork-chop, you... chork pop.

Both of my daughters spoke very well very quickly. We attribute a lot of that to the fact that we used sign language with them as babies. Of course even with the most well spoken child, they make little mistakes. To this day, we all get a big smile and a bit of the giggles when we eat pork chops for dinner... or chork pops as my youngest once said.
