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.

Didn't know mother's day could worsen.

My mom passed away a few years ago, I knew mother's day would be a constant reminder. A constant hurt. There was nothing else to make it worse.
Then came time and I became a step mom. Now not only do I not have my own mother to spend it with, but I also don't have a daughter to spend it with.
