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.

Right now, I'm reading:
100 Years of Solitude

My favorite story of all time is:
People of Paper

In bed I like to read:

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Vice Magazine, Heeb Magazine, The New Yorker, This American Life, Ted.com

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
I was a child model, got fat, then decided to work the business. Graduated Magna Cum Laude from USC in Film and Social Work. Currently work at "Family Guy" and write for "Hello Giggles".
