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:
No, right now I am typing.

My favorite story of all time is:
The one I haven't written yet. It's really good; there's ninjas, zombies, pirates, and a unicorn battling a fire-breathing dragon for control of the world. It's AWESOME!

In bed I like to read:
Read? In bed? That's not what it's for, man.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
All over the friggin' web.

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?
Not being able to tie my shoes.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Stop bugging the girls, you dipshit.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
The Song Remains the Same

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