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.

Guided her daddy through death valley.

A very dear friend lost her father today. She made sure that he knew what was happening to him, made sure his wishes were honored, helped his wife get settled into the bed with him to sleep awhile, sang and laughed and listened to his stories, and held his hand as he drew his last breath. She's my hero today. Karen, you're a warrior princess. I'm so lucky you let me be your friend.
