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.

I'm fine, but my little red truck is somewhat the worse for wear. An older fella just didn't seem to see me, and plowed into the back of my pretty Tacoma. Considering how many miles I've logged, I was probably way overdue anyway. The older fella was quite apologetic, and we had a nice chat for the hour it took the state trooper to arrive.
