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'm in nirvana, floating on a cloud that few if any will experience.

My favorite story of all time is:
The Bible and Koran; fiction with a little humor.

In bed I like to read:
No, I like to sleep, and have uninhibited sex with young women doing unconventional things to me, but mostly just sleep.

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?
Surely you jest? Becoming unraveled enough to "throw up my hands in exasperation?" Never!

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Next time, use a sharper machete!

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
There has never been, nor will there be, a song written that could encapsulate the magnitude of the diverse lifelong journey I have experienced. I'm the envy of the droll 99%. What an insult to suggest there might be.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
"The most interesting man in the world" of course.
