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.

Right now, I'm reading:
Just recently started a book club, so I am learning to like all kinds of books.

My favorite story of all time is:
I'm an endless romantic... Always wishing to be swept off my feet.

In bed I like to read:
Until I fall asleep. Lately though I have been coming to this site and finding 6 words to write. I try to be creative too...sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. http://angswords2011.blogspot.com.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Facebook, Twitter, blogger and anything that catches my eye!

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?
dumb luck

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Got to college and become someone

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My mom
