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:
Steve Jobs and The GIrl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

My favorite story of all time is:
Harry Potter!

In bed I like to read:
Anything that is fiction and fall seamlessly in with my dreams.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Mental Floss

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?
Surprising twists and turns all around.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be confident, only you are you.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
It changes day by day, mostly with my mood! At the moment? Sweater Weather by the Neighbourhood!

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
J.K. Rowlings. I love her!
