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.

Little Man and the Dancing Shoes.

by Wench on November 19, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Of all the gifts my son received for his birthday, by far the most exciting is his new shiny black shoes. I'm pretty sure it's because they make him feel more like Gene Kelly in Singin' In The Rain. He was hopping around in them the other day and I asked if he was jumping. "I dancin'."

He put his hands in his pockets on his own, here. Does he have any clue what a little heart breaker he is???
