Is this as good as it gets, /lit/?
How should I go about describing a characters appearance? I remember hearing someone tell me about how in Ulysses, Poldy's appearance is intentionally left vague so the reader can project themselves onto him easier. So my question is what is/isn't important to tell your reader about a character's looks.
Also writting advice general I guess
IMO describe only the most distinctive features and use general terms like 'attractive' or 'unattractive' or 'unconventionally attractive' or 'plain' or whatever, building a frame of sorts for peoples imaginations to fill in
How the fuck do i read this book, /lit/?
It is confusing as fuck, but i heard it was really good so i bought it.
The only good chapter so far is the one about the guy waiting for his weed delivery. Then it's talking about some random iranians or something...
It's starts getting more coherent around 200-250 pages in, but you're going to encounter a lot of digressions and vignettes. You will also encounter endnotes longer than 10 pages.
If you're not digging the style already, don't torture yourself. If you do, just truck on.

Why is character development so goddamn important for everyone?
I don't see anything wrong with characters having the same (however complex and/or faulty) characteristics and personality throughout a story with no change. A character can go through a journey without changing their personality or their opinions on stuff, and that would still be an interesting read.
Most people don't change, why must characters in literature do so?
people are idiots who can't decenter their own fabulated subjectivity, can't imagine a world where everyone isn't "growing" and "developing" like they think themselves to be, even more can't imagine that maybe they have been psychologically static since mid-high school, can't look past their own insipid delusions of selfhood for once in their god damn useless cattle-lives.
looking for dystopian literature about the internet or at least being a huge part of it.
Here goes something I wrote in Spanish.
Every critique is welcome. Also Critique Thread in Spanish.
Anon, te seré honesto, sólo leí el primer párrafo. Entonces, mi crítica va en función del estilo y no de la anécdota.
Me parece que eres innecesariamente descriptivo, creo que el texto sería más atractivo si las imágenes se dibujaran sin tanto parloteo. O bien, que el estilo fuese de la mano con la anécdota, pero bueno, eso no lo sé puesto que no lo leí completo.
balbucía? no es balbuceaba? En que idioma habla Hakim con el portador del rifle (el "joder" me cayo mal, no soy español)?
Por que tiene el muchacho una remera tan informal si esta en el teatro?
Igual me gusta tu forma de escribir. No tengo mucho tiempo ahora pero lo voy a leer entero mas tarde
Can I have a /lit/ guide to this guy please? Also general /lit/ guides thread
I don't have a "guide" guide, but I can recommend an order.
If you're just wanting to check him out, read As I Lay Dying. It displays his modernist experimentation with narrative voice without being overwhelmingly complex/long.
If you liked it, you can proceed to The Sound and the Fury, but be warned that this is his most difficult book. It's rewarding and lends itself to many rereadings, and it shows the peak of his artistry.
After this, I recommend Absalom, Absalom!...

Personally, I'd read Light in August first, follow it swiftly with as I Lay Dying, then when you are ready for some more challenging stuff read The Sound and the Fury and Absalom, Absalom! If you want more, or a more "stand alone" place to start, go for The Reivers or Fable.
just downloaded and read a pdf of mein kampf. any more pdf reccomendations? pdf is the true format btw
What is /lit/'s opinion of making a personal journal? What are some of the things you'd write in your journal, how often, and what would motivate you to keep writing in one?
Go back to Reddit you fucking plebeian. This board is for fucking literature and I'm tired of you fucking plebs thinking you're on the standards of oysters like me.
Nobody cares about your Reddity fucking journal you unintellectual fucking pleb.
