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.

Right now, I'm reading:
An American Sniper, The Irregulars

My favorite story of all time is:
The Nature of the Legal Process, Cardozo

In bed I like to read:
the inside of my eyelids

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Barnes & Nobles and on my kindle app

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?
Ignoring my own advice and finding out I was right

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Buy Apple when Bill Gates does

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta - Ghetto Boys (sadly I'm more like the movie than the song)

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Ricky Gervais to make sure it was funny
