Hi all,
here is my quick .
My name is Massimo, I am from Italy and a year ago I had a weird dream about a boy and a strange phenomena.
That image grew in my head and I started writing some short stories (in Italian). I decided to publish them on a personal blog/site – crooked.ink. That wasn't enough: bored because of the lockdown, I decided to translate one in English and –a few weeks later– to write another one directly in English.

TL;DR: I think I enjoy writing.

A few months ago I wrote a very short story about Irish called ‘The Lios‘ starting from a quick incipit: “a young girl tells her dreams to her teddy bear”.

Big news for crooked.ink! Other than some reviews to the stories (I'll be never happy with them), I managed to add some cool features as:
- Reading time! Now at the top of each story/blog post you can see how much time you'll waste
- Contact form! Because shy people like me prefer to avoid social medias
- The very first story I wrote... -properly- translated in English!

Take look, you will see into your imagination! (yes, this may be a quote)

After a year, I finally translated in English the very first short story I wrote.
It is about a family living in Montana, where once the Crow tribe lived.
They had an interesting creation myth — ever heard about it?

I wrote a very short story called 'The Palace': it is about a very elegant building, yes. And death, too. I'm new to this type of narration, any opinion would be appreciated!

Yesterday I was sincerely shocked. For years I was intrigued by the description of the root beer.
Books, TV shows... each time I heard about it I was like "Damn, I HAVE to taste it!" – until a few hours ago.
In Europe we are told as children that drinking mouthwash is wrong 🤯 💔
