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:
"God Never Blinks" and " Steal Like An Artist"

My favorite story of all time is:
Shakespeare's "Twelth Night" or modern "She's the Man" =]

In bed I like to read:
Articles on my phone.. currently.. how other people are dealing with break ups. =/

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Why we broke up. LoveShack. and other anecdotes for this heartache.

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?
ughk. With me, this could be everything.
