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:
Anything and everything Augusten Burroughs

My favorite story of all time is:
If You Give A Mouse A Cookie..., Little Prince (it's amazing how differently you relate to that story as a grown up than as a kid!)

In bed I like to read:
Stories off the 'nets

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Postsecret, msnbc, random blogs, pork tornado (Dusty's hilarious blog)

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?
Music, movies, stand up comedy, and A LOT of hockey.
