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:
(12 Dec 09) Nothing. Too close to Christmas to have time to read!

My favorite story of all time is:
I love all of Tony Hillerman's stories. I feel like I've been there - seen the places, met the people.

In bed I like to read:
I never read in bed.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
ABC Tales - http://www.abctales.com/ and Crazy Aunt Purl - http://www.crazyauntpurl.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?
No idea. My life doesn't elicit that kind of exasperation, I'm happy to say.
