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:
Simple Times-Crafts for Poor People - Amy Sedaris Heaven is Real- Todd Burpo Have a Little Faith- Mitch Albom

My favorite story of all time is:
One? One? Really...One? Okay, I'll play... Summer and Smoke - Tenessee Williams

In bed I like to read:
the back of my eye lids...can't read in bed.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
My child's pre-school every Wednesday :)

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?
Leaving something, somebody or somewhere green for something greener, just to find out what I traded for had unexpectedly experienced its worst drought.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Much less Aquanet for Mall Hair OR None of this will matter soon.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Love by the Dashboard Light - Meat Loaf OR Imagine- John Lennon I don't know....it's a toss up.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Shel Silverstein...maybe from heaven.
