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.

Once with me, IRS made mistake.

He put us through a nightmare and the end result was in our favor. I felt like beating the hell out of him because he was so smug. Not so much when we won and got an apology. Very rare case but always stand up for what you see as an error. Now we have a tax guy do our taxes. Remember the IRS can make mistakes the same as the rest of us.
