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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

SIX WORD » LIFE

Fireflies make my lovelife seem tame!

by BanjoDan on July 1, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


There is a fascinating TEDTalk on fireflies:
http://www.ted.com/talks/sara_lewis_the_loves_and_lies_of_fireflies?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=button__2014-07-01

Biologist Sara Lewis has spent the past 20 years getting to the bottom of the magic and wonder of fireflies. In this charming talk, she tells us how and why the beetles produce their silent sparks, what happens when two fireflies have sex, and why one group of females is known as the firefly vampire. (It's not pretty.)
