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.


Six Word Memoirs


Member since October 12, 2013


Right now, I'm reading:
The White Queen, Philippa Gregory

My favorite story of all time is:
To Kill a Mockingbird. Or The Color Purple. Or Eat, Pray, Love. (The ELP book is so much better than the movie--although I love watching Javier Bardem as Felipe)

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Wonderfully funny blog at www.bigtopfamily.com

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Being sensitive is good trait.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Nancy Drew. And if she's not available, Alice Walker.
