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:
A Pretty Little Liars book.

My favorite story of all time is:
Looking For Alaska-John Green

In bed I like to read:
Whatever is written on the back of my eye lids. (:

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Just about anywhere.

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?
Being let down. My expectations are set too high. I'm always being let down or lied to or lead on.
