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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Passing along what we've been given.

When Jen and I started out six years ago, we had next to nothing. People who knew and loved us helped us by giving us things we needed - usually at the very moment we needed them. One of the myriad things I love about Jen is that I don't have to ask if she wants to pass a blessing along to someone in need; it's like she reads my thoughts. Tomorrow is going to be a grand adventure lending a hand to a friend in need. and I get to do it alongside the most amazing person I know.
