Quillink annotated banner

The Quillink annotated — A little Tumblr supplement for this site. Its description says it all: “Morrick’s modern commonplace book. Quick notes, interesting bits, annotated leaves, sundry things found and picked up”. I use it mainly to share images, quotes, links and to write the occasional very brief post.

 

 

Minigrooves banner

Minigrooves — The project started back in March 2012, with this fundamental idea: to offer short stories that can be enjoyed in a relatively short amount of time, like during a break from work, while commuting, while sitting in a waiting room, and so on. The idea came to me while admiring the work of some illustrators I discovered by complete chance while browsing the Web. I noticed how powerful was the immediacy of ‘getting’ their style and inspiration simply by examining a few samples of their work. It’s happened with musicians as well. I thought I could try to do something similar with what I do best — writing. Hence, the short story format, the watercolour-with-words, the ‘minigroove’.

Volume 1 of Minigrooves is currently available for iPad and Mac on the iBookstore. (Requirements: an iPad with iBooks 3 or later and iOS 5.1 or later, or a Mac with iBooks 1.0 or later and OS X 10.9 or later). More details about this ongoing project can be found in this article. An overview of the extra contents of the ebook can be found here.

 

 

Crosslines banner

Crosslines — From the What is Crosslines page: “Since March 2013, Crosslines has become a part of Low Fidelity — another literary project I first conceived in late 1995 and did not update much after 1999. As work on Low Fidelity has resumed after a significant creative drought, Crosslines is now an online place which serves as introduction and ‘further reading’ of the world presented in the novel. It’s a sort of Chapter Zero, but since it cannot be described as being either a prologue or epilogue, I decided to use the term exologue, meaning ‘outside the narration’.”

 

Neoglossary banner

NeoglossaryA fun side-project. I like word games and every now and then I create new words. But Neoglossary is also open to contributions, and showcases some linguistic inventions used in certain Apple copywriting.
