Why is it that sometimes my writing is God's personal words, other times it's shit?
What language do you write in?
Also do you know what you're writing? Our writing is always better when there's a clear vision behind it. Visionless writing is sporadic and meandering. Hit or miss.
Can you imagine how many budding authors we've lost to internet fanfiction communities?
Can you imagine how many budding authors we've lost to shitposting?
seriously though that is a very real thought and it's fuckin sad
What do you think of him? Have you read him? Are there any translations of his works out there? All of his works on the Archive are in french.
One of the greatest French writer if you like mysticism and pamphlets.
Some of his major works, yet still have to read his articles.
Learn French because I guess it can't be translated. Several english translations exist though.

Hey /lit/, what is your opinion on genre deconstructions. I'm doing one on Captain Planet and the Planeteers. Do you do any genre deconstructions? I might just buy your book.
I dont really like them but they have their place I guess.
I think its because they depend so much on the reader having a per-established knowledge of whats being deconstructed instead of being a straight story on its own.
Think the difference between EVA and Madoka. One played it straight with deconstructive elements on the side, while another kinda banked everything on its deconstructive aspects and didnt really go anywhere else.
It's a deconstruction of the shilling genre in that I have no idea what the fuck that post was about. The book's on amazon though.
Post an interesting picture and/or respond to a picture with some short prose/poetry inspired by it.
Hi all i am new to /lit/ and i am interested in reading. I have read oscar wilde, natsume soseki, yasunari kawabata which i enjoyed. But also i have almost completed the new testement of the bible and also the first five books of the old testament. The bible is really unlike anything else ive read in terms of quality and importance. Anybody else here feels affected similarly? Bible general.
ITT: your favourite chapter/scene from your favourite book
>the part where Tobin tells the kid about their previous encounters with the judge.
Probably my favorite part of The Tunnel is when Kohler explains his attempt to get a dog as a child.
From Suttree, Gene Harrogate describing why he is known as the Midnight Melon Mounter.
What do you think of this great poet?
I think Dan Schneider is an idiot who should leave the critiquing to Bloom. I'm not even that big a fan of Pynchon, but the way this guy just spouts unsubstantiated claims is infuriating.
post minor questions here because apparently the smartest board on 4chan can't keep track of more than four active threads at a time
>Maman died today
Is this the most kafkaesque thing he ever wrote?
Aujourd’hui, maman est morte
Probably. The French reminds me of the beginning of the Metamorphosis because the shocking part is at the end of the sentence just like "transformed" is in the Metamorphosis
>tfw evola next to derrida on my shelf
Who else /eclectic/ here?
