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:

My favorite story of all time is:
Alice in Wonderland! I honestly don't know why I love it so much but I do.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
PostSecret. I love that website.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
"Everything gets better. I promise you."

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
My wonderful boyfriend. He's never really seen anything I've written and I would love for him to see something of it but I don't think I'm ready for him to see it, you know?
