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.

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?

yapnet.org (probably not the best name for the purpose) is, as I understand it, a private place set up by writers and educators for any and all storytellers to share their work-in-progress and get constructive feedback on it. No strings attached.

Judging from a recent admin post there, not enough participation happens to keep inertia going, thus warrant keeping the site up. So if you think you could benefit from that kind of thing, or have the time to give feedback, check it out.
