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.

ABOUT ME

Right now, I'm reading:
I don't want to be crazy by- Samantha Schutz

My favorite story of all time is:
.... I'm not sure

In bed I like to read:
Something I can relate to... Ellen Hopkins is a favorite!

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Borders tucked in a corner away from the public.

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?
Never being good enough for myself. So many hours wasted writing letters I never sent.
