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:
American Gods by Neil Gaiman

My favorite story of all time is:
The Last Question by Isaac Asimov

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
http://hitrecord.org/records/56986 (Tiny Stories, although not 6-word tiny)... or I read stories in books or random places on the internet. Anywhere I can find them.
