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.

Right now, I'm reading:
I'm in between books at the moment.

My favorite story of all time is:
I love so many books I couldn't possibly narrow it down to just one.

In bed I like to read:
Whatever book I am reading at the time.

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 constant physical pain felt everyday.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't let anyone ruin you, run.
