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.

Began in kitchen, finished in bedroom.

Even in the summer, I cook with the windows closed. In my broke days (which I kind of still find myself in), date night could mean cooking at home and going for drinks, but once the aromas fill the air, two sets of hands are working on the same dish, and you ladle samples up for each other, dinner gets reheated and becomes a snack in between sessions of intense lovemaking.
