Six Word Wednesday

I love peeking in on the SMITHTEENS site which has become great fodder for my YA novels. The whole idea of the site is to tell the story of your life in just six words.

Here are some of my favorites teen angsty entries:

Sixteen and never been kissed. Pathetic. (by idontknow) aww!

I'm an artist, not an athlete... (by zaku-fox-kun) The story of my son's life!

Giving me butterflies through text message.(by silently-screaming) Perfectly modern.

Awkward boy, inexperienced girl. Ends disastrous. (by ssomuchlove) aww!

Dad: "Happy V-day."
Me: "Shut up."
( by zaku-fox-kun) parent/teen conflict.

***
SO what about the teen characters in my works-in-progress?


If I was Callen in my HANDS TOUCH book:
Can't touch you from a distance.

***

If I was Melody from A HAUNTED MELODY:
Miss you, but still feel you.

***

If I was Hayden in my DON'T TELL A SOUL zombie novel (LOVE the zombie nuts):
I masquerade as someone else everyday.

***
Here's my own six words for today:


Wish I had thought of that!


LOL! How about your own six words (or your protagonist's)?

Oh no! You're challenging me to use my brain at this hour!! Yikes!

What about: "I suck at this creative stuff!"

Love the photo! Even though I am in Florida, I am also sick of winter. It just keeps raining and raining. If it were snow, we'd probably have 40"!
Stopping by from SITS to say HI! I have made a promise to myself to visit and comment on all blogs posted to spread the love!

For me, from Adam in my WiP: "Who's the Adam Gillman you know?"

"And so our stories go..." said...

Love this idea. Forgot how strong words can be.

I love six word sentiments/bios. I also love the zombie peanuts, btw!

My own is what I actually use as my Twitter bio - 'Lots of grand plans, little oooph' (at least that's how I'm feeling today!)

I'll have to think about the 6 word thing; that's really cool. Since your into YA stuff, have you read "13 Reasons Why"? If not, DO IT!
