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:
Most likely, the Hunger Games.

My favorite story of all time is:
The Hunger Games

In bed I like to read:
The Hunger Games

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Givesmehope.com The FML for optimists. :)

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?
My story is one of helping others. It's who I am. Its who I want to be.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
This account is primarily my thoughts as a teenager. I took about a two year break from Smith and Smithteens, and have re-discovered this account. If I could go back in time, I would honestly "say that it gets better". It's honestly sad seeing myself get this low as to looking at some of my sixes. But what's in the past is done.
