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.

Fruit of vine made them swingers.

Some very 'unorthodox' dancing at a recent Bar Mitzvah (by the adults) led me to believe we had unwittingly infiltrated a crew. It's usually the 13-year-olds we have to sanction, it was all I could do to not tell their parents to 'tone it down.' What you do in your bedroom is none of my concern, but what happens on the dance floor is a whole 'nother story. I may be older than dirt, but I'm not blind and neither are their children.
