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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

ABOUT ME

Right now, I'm reading:
Requiem by Lauren Oliver

My favorite story of all time is:
...Still deciding!

In bed I like to read:
Sad romances. Or murder mysteries!

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?
Getting lost in the first ten minutes of a video game.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Hey, kid. Those supermodels are all fake. It's called airbrushing.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Markus Zusak, author of "The Book Thief."
