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:
The Coldest Winter Ever, Sistah Soulja

My favorite story of all time is:
I don't have just one favorite!

In bed I like to read:
Whatever I can manage to see!

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Newsweek, People, Psychology Today and more!

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?
Someone's always got my back, thankfully!

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Things change, and you grow up!

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Bond, Fiddy, Friend. Loved that bubble.
