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.

My favorite story of all time is:
Interview with a Vampire

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
My reading taste varies and whatever my bookclub Literary Divas is reading. We read a book a month. you can also follow me on twitter @MSKIASWAY and I also write and post my haiku's on wordpress nakiasantos.wordpress.com also my amazing story about my battle with Cancer.

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?

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Girl Enjoy your young years now

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Earth is the place Nathan Haines

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