About Me

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Don't underestimate yourself. Be your own.

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?
Dropping something, running into something, bumbling into something...something ungraceful.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:

In bed I like to read:
Whatever novel I'm reading at the moment.

My favorite story of all time is:
She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb

Right now, I'm reading:
John Dies at the End by David Wong

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Lua by Bright Eyes Cinder and Smoke by Iron & Wine

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Anyone who would genuinely care to understand my mind. I don't say that with hidden bitterness- just sincerity. If I can connect with someone then I'm content.
