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.

Change is all we have, always.

Our eldest is graduating high school and will be heading off to college out-of-state this fall; our baby is going to high school. They're outstanding, smart kids. We couldn't be prouder. Both homeschooled with me through eighth grade. So next month , I'm free to look for my first full-time job in eighteen years. THE ONLY THING I CAN COUNT ON IN THIS WORLD IS CHANGE. I must embrace it like the old friend it is. I learned that in Economics 101 back before my first career. I wonder where this change will take me.
