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.

Was weightless dancing on his toes.

Dad made me feel like his little princess when I was young. I can't recall the music or even if there was any. He might have been singing an old Bing Crosby favorite. It was a magical moment. At 82, when my husband and I married, dad needed me to hold him and give him support during our father-daughter dance. I had looked forward to that day since I could remember with tears streaming down my cheeks as we swayed. It was magical too.
