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:
"The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. Brilliant, beautiful, engrossing.

In bed I like to read:
On my kindle. Happy, light reading. Save the heady stuff for daytime.

My favorite story of all time is:
White Oleander by Janet Fitch.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Jezebel.com, Xojane.com, Hellopoetry.com, Typetrigger.com.

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?
"Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding just as it should." -Max Ehrmann

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Someday this pain will be useful.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Everlasting Light" by The Black Keys

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