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:
The Book Of Mormon

My favorite story of all time is:
This is a tough one. But I'll have to go with "The Count of Monte Cristo"

In bed I like to read:
Whatever particular book that captivates my interest

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
magickeys.com I have many nieces, nephews and cousins that I like to read to

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?
The fact that If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
enlist, serve, experience, discharged, reality, retire

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
I am I said

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My deceased grandmother
