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.

In bed I like to read:
The nightly love note I am writing to my husband.

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?
I want to run, bike or swim as fast as possible right past the Oncology Office.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
You really are Special and Dynamic. Despite your circumstances, you can and will realize your dreams. Write them down and see them happen.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Born to Run. R.E.M. - Everybody Hurts (recently).

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
One person? How about one planet?
