Six Questions For The Six-Word Festival: Rick Springfield


Day One of the Six-Word Festival on Twitter will move at warp-speed with the prompt, “Write a #SciFi Story in #SixWords.” In our Six Questions for the Six-Word Festival, we learned a little more about Rick Springfield, musician and science fiction author of the New York Times bestseller Magnificent Vibration.

What do you find appealing about the Six-Word format?

Can you share a trick, in six words or more, to beat writer’s block?
Read another’s book for ten minutes.

Who’s capturing your attention on Twitter lately?
I have ADD so no-one can.

What’s your current project or obsession?
Writing the sequel to Magnificent Vibration.

Finally, Rick Springfield, what’s your Six-Word Memoir?
