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:
Northanger Abby, Cloudstreet, Wuthering Heights and some Coleridge.

My favorite story of all time is:
I just haven't met it yet... But my life long poet crush is Keats

In bed I like to read:
*cough* Mills and Boon *cough* gguuiillltttyyy

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
The creative writing club I run at school - nerd chic ;)

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?
Doing stupid things like catching my own vomit... If only afterthought came before reflexes!
