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.

Nothin' quite like a Gel Manicure.

What can I say, I just always feel a little better about everything when I have Gels on. I feel prettier and more confidant, I bite my nails less, and plus playing hooky to get a manicure with my coworker is definitely the highlight of my day. Happiness that LASTS (unlike a regular mani of course).
