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:
The Adderall Diaries by Stephen Elliott and 21 Games for The Mind that Won't Shut the @#&* Up!, by A.T. Lynne

My favorite story of all time is:
Charlotte's Web

In bed I like to read:
The Datebook section of the San Francisco Chronicle or any Malcolm Gladwell book.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

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'd be talking about being future oriented, but slow to the game.
