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:
Joe Hill's NOS4A2

My favorite story of all time is:
Alice in Wonderland.

In bed I like to read:
mindless teen novels that I've read a thousand times. The plots make me laugh.

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?
I got involved in a thousand activities, and, consequently, haven't slept in four days. Or I broke my computer.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
I still am my teen self.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Be Yourself" by Audioslave

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Someone it would impact. I strive to change lives.
