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:
too many things (I should be writing instead)

My favorite story of all time is:
the Harry Potter series (although Watership Down and Jonathan Livingston Seagull will always hold a special place in my heart)

In bed I like to read:
from a bunch of different books, depending on the night (some are fiction, some non-fiction, some about religion, some about psychology, some humor)

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
the library; the gym

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?
Trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Existential angst...
