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:
Accounts of the battles of N.G.S.N.Y. 4th Heavy Artillery in the Civil War

My favorite story of all time is:
The Sing Song of Old Man Kangaroo

In bed I like to read:
Historical romance novels

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Online stories make my head hurt.

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?
Sleep; too much or too little... or else my flaky wifi connection that dumps precious research into the void
