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.

Be silly often, and invite friends.

Silliness is underrated, but necessary to happiness. Everyday we should practice being silly: it helps us take ourselves less seriously, and do so fearlessly. I'm a huge advocate of it, and love finding reasons (or inventing excuses!) to dress in a costume. This picture is with our community theatre group at the diversity festival in the park.
