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.

Open House. Welcome all who celebrate!

My oldest daughter graduates from high school tomorrow. Today was Open House, and friends and family filled our rooms with laughter and good wishes. This memoir is also an Open House. You are invited. What stories would you tell or advice would you give to a high school grad embarking on a future with college in the fall?
