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:
Smith mag. :-)

My favorite story of all time is:
The house of sand and fog and Taken

In bed I like to read:
Six-Word Memoirs by writers Famous and obscure, It all changed in an instant and Love and Heartbreak (I'm in all three and proud of it).

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Six Sentence, The Verb, Friday Flash, At The Bijou, Thrillers Killers'N'Chillers, Not from here are you, Vox Poetica, Gloom Cupboard, Paul Brazill, Helium, Facebook, Hint of fiction, One Sentence, Doorknobs and Body Paint, Word Salad , The Poem Factory, Blink Ink, Gather,Thinking Ten--,The Mind Worm, MuDJoB, Pen Ten Scribes, FaceBook , linkedin, and Jeanette Cheezum's cavalcadeofstars

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?
I'm writing, can I do that later?

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
And this to shall pass, dear.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
At Last.

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