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:

My favorite story of all time is:
Short story: The Meeting by Aimee Bender. Novel: The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

In bed I like to read:
Any of the books I happen to be reading at the time.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
A Practical Wedding, HuffPost, Refinery29

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?
*Being clumsy and awkward... yet incredibly lucky and grateful. *Looking much younger than I actually

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
You are okay just like that!
