Read expected got GO
Socrates was a crazy old coot back then, and if he were to live in modern era, he would still be considered a crazy old coot. His logic is very shitty. He would have made a much better autistic mathematician if he didn't concentrate so much sucking his own dick.
I listened to you guys and started with the Greeks, but I think I fell for a meme, again.
Did you like this book? Also, did you like the movie?
How many of you write?
What do you write?
Do you think you're any good?
Do you think you'll get published?
>Dostoevsky, Fyodor. Dislike him. A cheap sensationalist, clumsy and vulgar. A prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. Some of his scenes are extraordinarily amusing. Nobody takes his reactionary journalism seriously.
>tfw you're a begginer writer
>tfw you realize you could make a webpage for free and upload writings there
>tfw you could have people from all over the world reading your shit (for free though)
>tfw all that reach and free publicity

no more gatekeeper BS.
why aren't you making your own personal website?
How do i get into contemporary japanese lit?
And i dont mean momcore shit like banana yoshimoto or murakami.
So /lit/, what are you reading? I picked this up yesterday and I'm really enjoying it.
Who started the trend of characters with apostrophes in their names?
/lit/, I was wondering if you could help me locate a sci-fi anthology that I read some years ago, but can't recall the name of
The first story was about this man who injected these bacteria into his spine that slowly made him a superior human being (i.e. correcting his eyesight, ex.), eventually the bacteria spread to people he's friends with and the entire world into bacteria themselves
love plato but I usually find secondary literature on him usually disgusting, especially if in english, especially if written after the fifties (and it gets worst as time passes, articles in the 2000s are unreadable).
Just wanted to aimlessly complain about this and see if someone else feels the same.
I need to write a book of my own- so I figured I would need to read a few books first
What books would you recommend? I aim to only read good ones, and preferably ones that aren't simply informative
I don't count anything I've read as a child, so I would consider that the only book I've read was an amalgamation that included an analysis and the translated Art of War by Sunzi (had it in my room)
Currently reading the first Dragonlance book since its the only other one I own
I'm going to slightly hijack this thread, but it seems like an issue which might be relevant to OP (or maybe not, he could be proud and self assured)
I'm sort of working on my own book in my own lazy, self destructive, flailing way. I've shared parts with anonymous people on the internet who had no reason to lie, and I've gotten almost entirely good feedback. So my question is how do I allow myself to respect my own writing? Should I even try to do that? On some level I do, but I also feel like a pretentious piece of shit for those reasons. It's...

So I read the sticky and bought this book. Now the problem is that Im struggling big time. Ive read for hours and im only on page 25. I keep on zoneing out almost falling asleep. Any advice or good youtube tutorials how to read faster/better/whatever would be great, thanks.
1) Why are you reading it? Only to prep you for the Greeks? If yes, then just read the sections on the families, the heroes, and the Trojan War.
2) Take breaks in your reading; drink some coffee or tea.
Im reading it because I want my brain to get some kind of exercise other than just headbashing itself against the wall whilst im playing D3 all day long. Also I want to get down to the philosophers and then later nietchze thats my goal in terms of authors.
Well, I feel like im running a marathon by just reading two pages in this book every time. I dont think taking breaks is the problem solver here
Just got Gravity's Rainbow, what can I expect from it? What should I do in preparation for it?
>have loads of great ideas
>don't want to actually use them before I can develop my skills to an adequate level
>nothing to write about, so I can't develop my skills
How do I get out of this vicious circle?
