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:
This website form, growing eerily agitated as I do so, I might add.

My favorite story of all time is:
The Hobbit

In bed I like to read:
Smut...pure, unadulterated, x-rated...smut, most definitely, doesn't everyone?

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
so many frickin blogs and websites I couldn't begin to list them all. I also still read stories at the library down the street.

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?
I might be referring to a comic strip, something like "The Born Loser," or maybe something involving Charlie Brown

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be your own best friend, always

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
The Crying Game

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Mrs. Carolyn Pell, my high school English school teacher, from whom I learned so much.
