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:
Winter's Tale, by Mark Helprin

My favorite story of all time is:
The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman

In bed I like to read:
Funny textposts on Tumblr

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

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?
A story about a girl who's lived through too much and cried her heart out too often, but still has the courage to look at all the things in the world that hurt her and make her feel like she's not good enough and smile.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
It all changes, but it's okay.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
I Do, Susie Suh

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