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:
Steve Harvey's "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" and Jane Austin's "Pride and Prejudice".

My favorite story of all time is:
Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons

In bed I like to read:
Everything, that's where I do most of my reading regardless of the time of the day.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Nowhere in particular, just wherever I find something to read.

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 inability to figure out where I fit into the grand scheme of things. A creator at heart who cannot create is a miserable soul...that's exactly what I am.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Dig deeper. Find the real you.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Linkin Park - Somewhere I Belong

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