Pinned toot

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.

Typewriter effect just using HTML and CSS?
I thought it was impossible — I was wrong!

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!

lovers, what would you recommend as alternative for 's Preview?
In my opinion, it's an essential tool! Are you aware of any similar project?

Hey, ! What do you think about ? What is your favourite one? Do you change between them? Do you excersise for that?
I personally only used first-person for now just because I feel more comfortable with it. What do you prefer?

Very interesting article about - makes me wanna rewrite (and translate!) some short stories on crooked.ink in English julian.com/guide/write/intro

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 🤯 💔

This is my first twoot (tweet + toot), posted on both social networks by a neat script that required much more work that I expected.
As a bonus, here is an interesting link about life lessons. outsideonline.com/2401643/life

Who those who suffer from Firefox highly questionable address bar UI solutions. I have found this website to be very helpful: userchrome.org/megabar-styling

"Echo and Abyss" by Caspian (from "Dust and Disquiet", 2015)

This is my first toot sent by a script. It integrates with Apple's Music.app and gains some track info... and while reviewing this I realize that the Genre field in iTunes has always been a nightmare. What the heck is 'Alternative & Punk'?

By the way, if you like , give a try to Caspian!

"When men say that there are strange things in the world, they little know the awe and the terror that dwell always with them and about them."

Arthur Machen - The Inmost Light

I love Machen's and style. He and other masters like Lovecraft have a special talent to use simple phrases to dig in the deepest .
What do you think about weird fiction?
