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.

ABOUT ME

Right now, I'm reading:
a history of America in 101 objects

My favorite story of all time is:
Lonesome Dove

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?
the title "believe it or not!"

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
you think THIS is bad? HAH!!!

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
my mom, if she were still alive
