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:
Skinny Dip by...Unknown author...

My favorite story of all time is:
That of a girl named Poison who sets out on a simple mission that ends with her being God.

In bed I like to read:
Whatever happens to be on my night stand.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Yahoo, wikipedia, people, NY Times

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?
Setbacks...and poverty.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be more confident in your decisions.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
...woah, I doubt that even exists...

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