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:
Les Miserables, for the millionth time.

My favorite story of all time is:
my own.

In bed I like to read:
Cracked.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
postsecret.com, wefeelfine.org, cracked, buzzfeed.

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?
People bailed on me, no surprise.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't waste time planning your future.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Too many to choose.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
past and future me.
