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.

Cowboy was unavailable. Found prince instead.

by LuckyFarmer on April 8, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The love of my life in high school was the strong silent type. I had visions of a house in the country and white picket fences. It was not to be. He did not love me. But the universe knew what I did not. That my prince really would come. In the form of a man who was not afraid to tell you what he was feeling, and loved everything about me, warts and all.
