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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
Random things...

In bed I like to read:
Random things...

My favorite story of all time is:
I can only pick one?

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
A few favourites are: McSweeny's Internet Tendency, art Forum, Art in America, The Paris Review, VICE, New Yorker. Random places I end up online.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Try not to be so stupid...next time. (Ok that's eight words.)

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
In My Life. The Beatles.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
...what a strange question...
