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:
Always too many books to count.

My favorite story of all time is:
Harry Potter.

In bed I like to read:
Books. Doorways to a better world.

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?
Seems nothing ever goes as planned.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't trust their "special" kisses... ever.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Almost Lover

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