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:
pride and predijuce, hamlet, catch-22, 1984... did i mention im a student. =]

In bed I like to read:
the classics. best way to dream a good dream.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
mylifeisaverage.com (when i'm goofing off, not normally though. i'm not into the virtual world all that much.)

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?
siblings, school, my always breaking down car, feminism, D.I.Y., bab boys and good girls, tattoos, beauty beneath the make up, motorcycles, classical books, classical ballet, anxiety attacks, good music, big families, no money, living on the edge.
