Writing more

Dear reader,

Last year I bought myself a book with 1200 creative writing prompts. This year I decided to use it. I’ve decided to try and post a short story whenever I can. I already have two prompts that I’m working on. Well.. one is being worked on, the other one is still in my head as I’m working on the first one. Get it?

I can’t promise to post a short story every week, not even every month. Just when ever I have the creative mindset and whenever I can find time to write a short story as I also have a news website to run. Click on it, I know you want to!

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that I will be writing more for this blog. So I hope you will enjoy the new content that’s coming to the page. If you have a prompt yourself, just let me know. We’ll see what I can work with. I’m happy to give it a try.

Much Love,

Sam.

Welcome to Smaxx 2.0

Dear reader,

First of all; Happy new year! It’s been a while, and I’m sorry about that. I’ve been redecorating my room, I work at the post office and I’ve started my own news website. I’ve been so busy with that website that I haven’t read a single page since a few days before Christmas. And it only gets worse, cause for the first time in my life, I’ve lost a book. I repeat: I’VE LOST A BOOK! And not just any book, I’ve lost Good Omens (Smaxx December). Sorry again, Max..

Smaxx 2.0
Now, Max and I have had a month to relax, work, study and do all the things that needed to be done. All though, Max is still reading Good Omens. So now we are ready for a new season of The Smaxx Project. Get ready for Smaxx 2.0!

We’ve been having some Skype dates to brainstorm and now we’ve come up with a whole new reading list. Here we go!
