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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

ABOUT ME

Right now, I'm reading:
Palms and cards, sometimes tea leafs

My favorite story of all time is:
The one about the shark I caught.

In bed I like to read:
Not so much, hurts my neck.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
I read my own stories.

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?
War and peace.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Travel in time find your self.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Subterranean homesick blues

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Paula Poundstone
