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.


Six Word Memoirs




Member since June 14, 2013


Right now, I'm reading:
The Rosie Project

In bed I like to read:
Old magazines, memoirs which are longer than six

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Everywhere I can find them, not often online

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?
If you're shown two sets of three buttons, should you say they're the same or equal? What it the right answer decides your destiny?

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't worry, don't care, be happy. or: Things are what they seem, sometimes

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Don't know

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