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.

Life memoir written on matchbook cover.

I have come to believe that most of what I have done isn't worth remembering unless it directly affects the present or future. To much time has been wasted on the past and how I wished I could change things or I put too much emphasis on how it affects(ed) me.

I am a constantly changing and growing person and all that matters is how I view today, learn from my mistakes and move on.
