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 July 6, 2013


Right now, I'm reading:
The book that lead me to this website, "Not Quite What I Was Planning, Six Word Memoirs"

My favorite story of all time is:
A motivational story about a guru that you may have heard before. If not, then I'd love to tell you some time.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
aol.com for the news but not too much reading online. I enjoy reading the newspaper.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be your best and nothing less

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
I think the song would change daily to describe how I'm feeling, Or I'll need a very long playlist.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My grandfather. I wish he knew what I was thinking since he is no longer with me.
