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:
Fifth Business by Robertson Davies.

My favorite story of all time is:
I have lighting-shaped soft spot for the Harry Potter series.

In bed I like to read:
A book thick enough to fall asleep to.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
New to the online writing community. But I'm getting into reading some flash and fan fiction.

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?
Organization, or lack of it.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Still am. Currently making the mistakes.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
I have to choose just one?!

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
J.K. Rowling.
