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.

Characteristics that SMITH die-hard regulars share?

i haven't even been here a year yet (almost!) but i don't see myself leaving. i've noticed that some people post a few memoirs and then you don't see them again, while others post regularly, and if they leave, people wonder where they are. what do you think are the characteristics of those who can't stay away? do you think there are any common characteristics, or not?
