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.

Lovingly leaves lots of labeled leftovers.

My guy currently works third shift with overtime almost everyday. He gets home in the middle of the night craving a home-cooked meal, which is always waiting for him in the fridge covered in love notes. I adore waking up to hear him come home and exclaim with joy over his nightly dinner. Such a hardworking man deserves good food!
