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.

Love these 'no going back' updates.

Updated to Wordpress 3.9 and now my website is broke. After an hour I found the conflict and it is with an essential plugin that now must remain inactive for my site to run. If I could take back hitting that update button, I would. I wonder if Obama cares?
