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.

Right now, I'm reading:
Six Words Fresh Off the Boat. :)

My favorite story of all time is:
Pride and Prejudice

In bed I like to read:
Usually I won't read in bed. Otherwise, I'd never get any sleep.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
HONY is a favorite of mine at the moment.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
My life's story has yet to exasperate me.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
You're worth more than you think.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Life on Mars?

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
I would be flattered if anyone read my writing
