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.

Right now, I'm reading:
A web page. Durrrr.....

My favorite story of all time is:
I don't know yet, but I DO know it doesn't end with "...happily ever after."

In bed I like to read:

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 would imagine it has something to do with a cat.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
"Buy yourself an apartment building, ASAP." "Credit card offers come from Satan." "You're not able to save everyone." "It's gonna be a wild ride."
