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.

First real concert you went to?

by LucidDreamer on October 30, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

By 'real', I mean you went to a concert with only your friends, boyfriend, girlfriend...no parents, chaperones, teachers, etc. And now, to give you an idea of how old I am - my first 'real' concert was.....The Clash. Saw 'em in Richmond, VA....finally felt like an honest-to-God teenager (there wasn't much to do out where I grew up...we had to drive 1.5 hours to get there. We loved every second of that evening and yet, I cannot remember who the heck opened for them...some-timers strikes again!)
