>You will never write as wasted as Borges
i mean, just look at his eyes! the man was fucked!
What's your program of choice for your literary ambitions? Word has become too ugly.
>Does anyone write solely by hand any more?
what is /lit/'s opinion on Dune?
I read it about two years ago.
Enjoyed it. Listened to the Halo soundtracks while I read to reinforce the sci-fi feeling.
As much as I enjoyed it, though, I didn't really feel an urge to read any of the sequels.
The movie wasn't awful, but with all the cuts and such, I can understand why Lynch had his name pulled.
Come on now! Share your poems!
Somewhere Between Vertov and Weerasethakul
Lights flicker as numbers count down
But never make their way to zero. Soon
The blank images are replaced by people
In motion. You can see the sweat of their brow or
The innocence of youth
Stolen by cannonfire.
The images continue to flicker
At 16, 24 frames per second.
They come to a standstill at Marker
And then move again. It is a motion
That can be paused
But never stopped.
Der he is, the ancient gupis
Blood on my sheets, the beat
God has swept the earth, another sweep
Phones, decadence, super bleep.
Where dert are thou tragedy?
I shall conquer, never falter
The water swam like troibis fish
Running wildly, never to see foreign.
I want to study Napoleon. There's nothing on the wiki. Where do I start? Preferably something close to objective
fuck it, if we're gonna be off-topic the new BSMR album just leaked, thought ya'll shud kno
1984 vs. Brand New World. What had a better or more effective dystopia? Which do you think our world would end up in?
I have to bullshit 12 pages of an essay by tomorrow. its about a horrible topic that I do not ever wish to write about, ever. I do not ever wish to write or be a writer ever, but its too late to refund this piece of shit class so I might as well try to pass.
any tips or advice? plagiarising is not really my goal, and its hardly a topic that could be plagiarised anyway
1. Look up a few articles on your topic and copy/paste huge relevant chunks of them into a word document.
2. Edit down the mass block of text until it's the right length for your essay and is a few barely coherent paragraphs written by an idiot.
3. Go through the text line-by-line and replace everything with rewordings and synonyms. Make sure not a single sentence of the essay matches the source text.
4. Add introductions and conclusions to each paragraph.
5. Give your essay a lame and generalized...

Hey, /lit/. This is a weird request but I thought you could help me out here; I need a username, and I, for the life of me, cannot think of one. Could you help me, /lit/izens?
Getting through Naked Lunch and what was, at first, cumbersome to read became extremely enjoyable. His prose and irreverent subject matter makes for an interesting read.

How do I get better at convincing myself just to read?
I love to read and whenever I actually pick up my kindle and just read but I never have the motivation.
It's always so much easier to dick around on 4chan after a day of work, how do I motivate myself /lit/?
I was expecting this a reply like this.
No I don't like the idea of being "a guy who reads". If I did I'd be one those faggots who made a rate my bookshelf post everyday and who lug around their copy of uselessyses for every train ride or just sit in a public park.
I have a kindle and I read mostly in bed or sometimes at my home desk.
I hurt my leg and fell off the porch. I can't even walk anymore! How am I supposed to write the next great American novel?
Translate your suffering and angst into art. Write a novella about a man who breaks his leg and, at the same time... his spirit. However, he finds God and marries a beautiful Christian girl. However, she cheats on him and he kills hers and himself.
For too long I have been redpilled by the filth that is /pol/...
I want to go back to being an obedient worker class subordinate again so that I can stop being an edgy NEET and get a real job.
Any books I can read that can help with that? How do I convince myself to accept the fact I will be a low paid wageslave for the rest of my life and its not the fault of the jews?
Not only will reading this book bluepill you, it will also lower your IQ a few points and make you insufferable to be around.
I feel I have a good understanding of female sexuality. Should I write smutty romance novels? I think I could give it a good go, and not make them trash.
Is there money to be made?
I write fetish fiction and make a few hundred bucks a year off of it. It's not much, but it's nice have money specifically bookmarked for drugs.
I think normie romance novels would be a lot harder to make money off of though, my market is an oligopoly, yours would be incredibly competitive.
Where to buy cheap books online? I'm in Europe.
Where do I start with Sartre?
