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:
The Leviathan trilogy

My favorite story of all time is:
Well written with an amazing plot.

In bed I like to read:
Books and on my computer.

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?
Anything and everything.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Trust your instincts, not someone else's.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
The authors that have inspired me to write, and my mom and sister.
