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.

Right now, I'm reading:
The Smile Avielle of Rhia

My favorite story of all time is:
By These Ten Bones -- Clare B. Dunkle

In bed I like to read:
My Scriptures. Random Books.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Fanfiction.com Wattpad.com

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?
Having people judge me without knowing me. Being called Bi, Lesbian, Weird, Stalker, Creepy, etc. I'm straight, slightly weird, borderline stalker, and can be creepy. Can't they just get it right?;)

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Get over it. Life Goes On.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
So Many. Music is my Life. Favorite Artists are... -Hunter Hayes -Rihanna -He is We -Rascal Flatts -Taylor Swift -Florence and the Machine -Ed Sheeran <3

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
I don't know. My family might criticize and worry, my friends would worry about me even more than they already do, the guy I like would be scared away probably.
