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:
nothing. It's kind of sad, isn't it?

My favorite story of all time is:
Harry Potter!!

In bed I like to read:
non-freaky books. Especially Harry Potter.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
on blogs...in the book store...

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?
panic attacks. ....nooo...actually, the song "Tied Together With A Smile" by Taylor Swift and "Believe In Me" by Demi Lovato

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Marching On by OneRepublic

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
J.K. Rowling or somebody else
