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:
If I committed to one story, I would feel bad for all of the other stories

In bed I like to read:
I like to read everything and anything in bed.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
The NY Post.

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 bored with work.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Just concern yourself with your life.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Eye of the Tiger

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