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 that interests me

My favorite story of all time is:
Burning Up and Off Limits [romance]

In bed I like to read:
romance novels [eHarlequin-Blaze series], ESL teaching books, how-to books[Creative writing, start a business], self-help/relationship books [SARK, 1001 ways to meet mr. right, glamour and cosmopolition magazines]

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
The Writer magazine, Facebook, FanStory.com

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?
All the reflection I've done through health scares, breakups, and a lay off all transformed me into a stronger woman.
