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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Member since January 10, 2011


Right now, I'm reading:
Grendel, The Historian, Dracula, Sign of the Sugared Plum

In bed I like to read:
Just about anything with words on it, comic books to dictionaries

My favorite story of all time is:
The Phantom Tollbooth

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 arts. Violin, choir, acting, drawing, painting. I also do a bit of writing.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be happy with what you've got.
