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:
Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Way of Tarot; Woody Allen's Without Feathers; Geoff Dyer's But Beautiful; Grant Morrison's Batman & Robin

My favorite story of all time is:
Jack Kirby's Fourth World

In bed I like to read:
Graphic novels propped against my pillow so that 99.9% of the time they're so good I read untill i fall nose-smush into the book, and some how its always nose smush.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

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?
The story of someone who loves a lot of things and wants others to love what he loves for the sake of the universe.

JahFurry’s Latest Memoir of 4

“My love cuts a wide swath.”
