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:
Anything other than what I should be reading which is my class assignments. Forced reading takes the fun out of reading!

My favorite story of all time is:
The one where the good guy gets the girl at the end.

In bed I like to read:
O magazine or random free kindle books.

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?
Making it out of the house on time and realizing I forgot my phone.
