>TFW a book starts out strong and reels you in, but then turns to absolute shit half/three quarters of the way through.
Do you struggle through it to the end or just toss it away?
where do I start with pic related /lit/?
I don't mean to sound like a retard, but is it just me, or is secularism becoming increasingly anti-intellectual? It seems like it was very intellectual back in Foucault's day, but now it's trending more toward Sam Harris and SJW's and misogynistic libertarians.
Just read this. Fucking awesome. What are some of the best "Choose your own adventure" type books?
Why is this type of genre not more popular?
And why are the vast majority of the titles geared toward kids?
"Choose your own adventure General", I guess.
>"Choose your own adventure General"
Also, "Goosebumps General"
>flann o'brien was working on what was basically a choose-your-own-adventure book when he died
Sounds cool. Do you know the title?
>but they havent published it.
Those fucking cucks.
What does lit think of fan fiction?
Did you actually know who is this guy?
What ideas shouldn't you be contemplating or working out anymore in the current year?
I GOT THE CURRENT YEAR ON MY SIDE BIGOTS

Has there ever been a more ill-fated thinker in history?
“I do things like get in a taxi and say, "The library, and step on it.”
If you don't empathize deeply with this quote, if it doesn't strike a chord with the inner child that all of us have, then idk what the fuck you're doing on the /lit/ board, go shitpost about the ez tv you just wasted 5 hours binge watching.
What are some books?
What's your favorite sentence?
Has anyone here written an erotic novel for extra money?
How's the pay? Do they expect quality work or can you write the novel in a single night whilst drunk?
Isn't the market pretty saturated already so to speak? People also provide that stuff for free on literotica and other sites. Still I'd be interested to know if I could make my hobby pay :^)
Has /lit/ found any books on writing useful?
Perhaps this, or Elements of Style?
I made a ton of progress by following King's hard-nosed work ethic for several months. I don't think I can write my best work that rapidly but it was really good practice and I'm glad he convinced me to do it.
That chapter where King just shits on the guy who ran him over with a van was dank as fuck.
This thread is on /lit/ and not /tv/ is because I feel /lit/ will be better able to answer my question and it applies to literature as well:
Does the artist's intention matter?
I was watching Welcome to Me, a movie about Kristen Wiig being a crazy person who wins the lottery and gets a vanity talk show. People love it and academics start praising her as a genius. A college student interviews her and asks her about her 'race-blind casting' to which she replies that the black actress she hired was "the prettiest that day." Of course this...

And these reason I bring up the movie at all is because it frames the question in a plausible way, I know scholars argue over the intentions of crazy artists like Henry Darger, about the supposed gender/queer implications of his fantasy girls have dicks etc. and I'm sure they argue about other crazy artists
Thinly disguised homework thread.
On the off chance you actually care about the subject matter, all you're going to find here is a lot of goalpost-shifting between art having value as a medium of expression and art having value only to the audience.
