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:
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

My favorite story of all time is:
A Confederacy of Dunces.

In bed I like to read:

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Esquire. Books. Sports Illustrated.

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?
Somebody else made it with my idea.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Obey your gut and your heart.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye and Life's Been Good by Joe Walsh and Dirty Deeds by AC/DC

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Meredith Sires
