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.

Six-Word Caption Contest #13: Fallon Takes Over The Tonight Show

The mic has been passed! On Monday, February 17, Jimmy Fallon debuts as host of The Tonight Show. He’s taking over from long-standing host Jay Leno and taking the show back to its roots in New York City.

Fallon also has roots in Six, sharing his own Six-Word Memoir with his audience during an interview with Gayle King shortly after Oprah Magazine featured the project: "Not funny. Funny. Not Funny. Funny?”

Using this photo as inspiration, tell us your six words about Jimmy Fallon and his new gig. Is he ready for the new time slot? Is the new time slot ready for him? What’s your favorite moment from his first broadcast? Or simply write a Six-Word Memoir for Jimmy himself. There’s sure to be plenty of rich material—just remember to Say It In Six!

Submit your Six-Word Caption Contest entries in the comments below, or on our Facebook page (SMITH Magazine|The Six-Word Memoir Project), or tag us on Twitter (@sixwords) or Tumblr (sixwordmemoirs).
