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.

Could you give up your car?

We have guests from England visiting. They gave up their cars a few years ago, and now walk and bike everywhere. They even walk to the grocery store and carry their grocers home! I started thinking, with my lifestyle, it would be hard to give up my car. How about you? Could you give up your car and use walking and biking as your mode of transportation?
