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 Fault In Our Stars (i'm reading it again!)

My favorite story of all time is:
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green and It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

In bed I like to read:
John Green's magically works of art and anything about Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
the library :3

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?
haha ummm it would have to be a story about a teen who is going through a period in their life when they're really trying to figure out who they truly are and it's difficult

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
i'm still a teen so...... LIVE FAST DIE YOUNG!!!!! just kidding

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
LOLZ!!!!! There could never be one song, but it would be songs from Vampire Weekend, Fun., Mumford & Sons, Sia, She & Him, MGMT, and many more

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
John Green
