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:
bright's passage by josh ritter jonathan strange and mr. norrell by susanna clark paper towns by john green (reread) the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society (reread)

My favorite story of all time is:
Harry Potter or Paper Towns

In bed I like to read:
pensive books with lots of depth.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

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?
a story occurring in someone's imagination.
