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.

ABOUT ME

Web Site
/www.facebook.com/RightWhereMyHeartShouldBe

Right now, I'm reading:
The short stories we're given in Intro to Lit or Creative Writing, and science education articles for my teaching class. Such is the life of an English/elementary education major.

My favorite story of all time is:
Silver Linings Playbook

In bed I like to read:
Tumblr

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
FML, MLIA, Found, Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter

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?
Needing to learn how to put myself first in certain situations, needing to learn how to say no when I feel as though people are asking too much of me.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
It is all uphill from here.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
'Inside Outside' by Jack and White

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My future publisher, future husband, or personal hero.
