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:
-nothing. almost never do. sad, but true.

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 fear of getting off the couch and doing all the things you're thinking about doing

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
-dumb ass, get yourself out there

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
-If I could only have one person read this, what would the point in putting it here be? I would just send a note to that person, or give them a call or go over to their house and have coffee with them.
