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.

I am going to Heaven because...

by LotLessMonster on May 6, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I woke from a dream in which this was an after dinner game, of sorts. Everyone at the table got a card and a piece of paper to write down why they thought they were going to heaven. Kinda of humbling if you can't think of anything. Thought it an interesting idea. Now it appeals to me as a six-word challenge as well.
