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.

Don't let my memoirs depress you.

Sooner or later, we all go through the loss of a loved one. And with that loss comes grief. Grief never leaves, it is always percolating beneath the surface, ready to pounce at the most unexpected times. But talking about it and writing about it helps...so I thank you for your tolerance and kindness
