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.

Dad found stash. Was totally cool.

by Quinnford on March 27, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My dad went into my bag to steal back his lighter. Doing so, he found my stash of weed. I was expecting him to freak out, but he lives with the same woman I do, so he was totally cool about it. He understands how it helps my anxiety and how it's the only way that I (or, both of us, really) can interact with mom on a daily basis without having a major breakdown.
