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:
above magazines

My favorite story of all time is:
Too many good stories, have lots. A few are: Feast of All Saints, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, Cold Mountain, Clan of the Cave Bear, Aztec, etc etc etc

In bed I like to read:
same as above; a lot of the times I write instead.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Newsweek, National Geographic, online news

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?
They are always married.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Watch out for the flirty boys.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Damn Your Eyes

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
The one who does.
