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:
Can't read much right now.

My favorite story of all time is:
The Little Mermaid, who gave up everything for love.

In bed I like to read:
my E-Reader, with BIG print.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
I'm not reading stories anywhere right now.

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 usually found myself on the cusp of too early or too late when it came to deciding what I wanted in life.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
What goes around comes around threefold.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS. My Mom sang this song to all of us kids, from the time we were babies, every night when she put us to bed.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My Mom.
