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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
The Spirk archives of archiveofourown.org

In bed I like to read:
--Homework (neccesary, but not enjoyed) --Fanfiction --My nook

My favorite story of all time is:
--Persuasion, by Jane Austen --Pride & Prejudice, by Jane Austen --The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
--www.archiveofourown.org --www.fanfiction.net --www.fictionpress.com --www.figment.com

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 love story that never was --The pain of grief that could cripple entire armies --The impossible second chance that still has me hoping for happily-ever-after.

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?
Handwritten, The Gaslight Anthem

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