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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
The Great Gatsby

My favorite story of all time is:
"Now Is Not Too Late" by Isabella Holland

In bed I like to read:
Mostly my kindle.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Just SMITH!

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?
Chaos, destruction and hope.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't ever lose your optimism. Ever.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Runs In The Family" Amanda Palmer

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
If I could have one person read my writing at SMITH I'd be thrilled :D
