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.

Let's run away and grow young.

Because growing old sucks; the responsibility and the cruelty and the unrelenting jaded outlook on life holds no appeal for me, even though I'm already no better than the rest of them. I don't want heartbreak, I don't want bills, I don't want to buy a house or pay rent or do my taxes. I just want to wander cities and run on too much caffeine and too little sleep. I want to find myself while getting lost and dye my hair again and get one or maybe five tattoos and I don't want to decide between practicality or having dreams. Because either way, I'll choose wrong.
