something to compliment ketamine or maybe even some pays.

I normally like to take ketamine and lie back close my eyes and listen to some pink flyod or other weird sound tracks and watch the mental show it gives me.
I also like to watch freak films while on it.
So with this in mind I want to try and find some audiobooks that have a creepy feel to them (A good narorator will be needed) my eyes won't be able to read the words on these drugs and on top of that it's really nice to just listen.

Taking a short survey to help with my writing.

Do you read any ethics books or motivational books?
If so what do you look for?

How do you feel about indie books or ones you have not heard of?

What do you think if a book says something that is good writing but that you don't agree with?

Are you a known bandwagon jumper?

Do you share books with others or tell them of good finds?
If so, how?
Thank you books and tits for your cooperation

A sailor came from over seas, and asked his lover this.

Do you resent my love, my love? Do you resent my kiss? Do you resent my love, my love? For long have you been missed.

I see the furrow of your brow; exasperated sighs. I see the way you look aloft when my ship passes by.

Does anger beget scorn of me, or something other hid, or ignorance to be pronounced of something that I did?

Do you resent my love, my love? Do you resent my kiss? Do you resent my love, my love? For long have you been missed.

My love, she said, forgive me please, my hate is void of spite. As I resent my love, my love, from bitterness of sight.

I see in every passing wake your love reflected true; the sea mirroring my own love, alas scorns me for you.

So I resent my love, my love. Yet not resent your kiss. So I resent my love, my love, and how long you have been missed.

Never spoken softly said,
I towards my mistress dear.

Never stolen kisses wept
but for the temperament of fear,

denied throughout a mind well kept,
softly singing nevermore

of sweet nothings nonetheless,
left lying on the kitchen floor.

Forever lost amidst the things,

primitive asymmetry of her body
edges defined in thick pencil
delicate intricacies of some jagged, ancient rug
hips like still, lead crystal

arches, painful--knotted

her hair, unwashed, smells like menthol and cinnamon

Your forgetting about all the sex though too. Shakespere was making entertainment for everyone. That's what people forget. He was trying to make shit exciting.

Sure, you'll have people talk about depth of literature, those sort of things. But the authors intention gets so forgotten. Shakespere wanted to make stuff that would entertain a wide crowd. It wasn't all about being high brow or anything.

It's that time of the year where my eyes turn into dollar signs and the hunger for money becomes so great that everything seems possible or at least worth the shot, as long as there is a chance of some money. So much so that me, who never reads books or writes anything, can potentially become a successful writer. But obviously I know it's more dreams instead of reality and so here i am asking about some thoughts on my mind.

Just like with any practice, you improve with time and effort. Its gonna take awhile until your writing is good. Even a gifted writer's latent talent wont progress without diligence. So if someone without a notable potential for the art did their best and persevered they too could be a master.

By what standard is the writing judged? Well I guess it depends. What are your own thoughts about your work? Have a friend read it. Their impression? Post it here to probably get shit and support. A publisher? Critics? ...

Hey, its good y'all were able to write a book, instead of, you know, not.

How is your writing going /lit/? Anyone here working on something or have any work they want to share? Not poetry, we have the OC Poems thread for that.

I am 2 acts done with a 3 act novel. I have written short stories before, and this is my first long endeavor. I had always lacked confidence, but one day, I suddenly stumbled upon the perfect horror novel just sitting in my mind. Like, it is literally the greatest horror story if this generation. It will go down as The Wire of horror stories for it's brutal look at reality at the bottom of the barrel. But it will also be like Trailer Park Boys and have a cast of lovable losers, who are down and out, living where every day feels like the end of the world, and having that corner of the ghetto become the backdrop for what will be the end of the world for real, with the local stoners and crackheads the last line of defense before an ancient evil reclaims the planet it once ruled a millennia ago. It is not a horror comedy like John Dies At The End, it is straight horror with some comedic moments the way an action movie can have good comedy. I know it will be an insta-classic and probably get a film adaption. As a long time 420channer, I will find some way to get it to you all for free after I find a publisher, since I know this site thrives on piracy, even if I have to pay them for digital downloads for all 3-5 regulars here. Drugs and the apocalypse, it should be right up most of /lit/s alley.

I'm not gonna pick them all out but you're using big words for the sake of using them. There's nothing you couldn't say in plain English while getting the same effect.

lol, no I'm not, the entire purpose of me doing this is to challenge the way people perceive characters like this and view them with a little more depth and nuance than "some hoodrat gangbanger", that and the character's internal monologues, exchanges with other characters (notice how she never uses the word 'nigga'?) and mannerisms in general are supposed to illustrate how ridiculously at odds she is with her environment

Almost done drafting my 4th novel, it's a modern Tower Of Babel tale starring a midget. To the guy in another thread who wants to become a writer without actually being a reader: bad plan. If you want to get into storytelling, you should pick the medium you genuinely care about. If you love anime, draw a comic. If your a gamer, learn how to make a video game. If you want to write books, you need to read a fuckload of books. When people who don't read avidly try writing, it always comes off like a YA book, or reads like a rambling blog post with a narrator saying "And then... and then..." with no actual technique.

Brandon Sanderson just released the third and final book of his Reckoners trilogy, and it was fantastic. Where are all the Sanderson fans in here? It was this board that told me to read his shit, and now that I do, nobody ever will talk about them with me lol

Now starting Altered Carbon. Netflix is making a show based on it, and I like reading books that have adaptions impending so I can compare them later.

Recently read Bret Easton Ellis' Less Than Zero (which I really enjoyed) and am now about three quarters of the way through American Psycho, which I am enjoying decidedly more.

I'm not going to lie, the drawn out passages describing Bateman's cannibalism and necrophilia turn my stomach, but it's honestly one of the most well written and absorbing critiques of American consumer culture I've ever read. Spent around 5 hours straight reading it yesterday and can't wait to finish it when I get home after work.

Or gar-rar-ge instead of garage. Where's that extra R coming from?

Anyway, my biggest linguistical pet peeve is when someone refers to a drawer as a draw. Example: "Please put your freshly laundered clothes in your draw." I also can't stand people who use is instead of are. Example: "Did you check to see if the clothes is dry?" Oddly enough, my MIL and SIL are guilty of doing both and I can't correct them because it's rude.

I also hated the phrase, "It is what it is". It's such a cop out phrase.

>"It is what it is".

That one annoys me too. They should say "it isn't what it's not" instead.

NatSoc here.
I'm looking for good reads from authors who know what's wrong with the world and what is most important in life.
Any recommendations?

>>69145 Whoah, whoah bro, don't throw all samurai under the bus. Miyamoto Musashi's Book of Five Rings top notch. *pats chest* And what about rōnin, huh? Yeah, thats what i thought.

>First of all, the way of warriors means familiarity with both cultural and martial arts. Even if they are clumsy at this, individual warriors should strengthen their own martial arts as much as is practical in their circumstances.

>People usually think that all warriors think about is ready to die. As far as the way of death is concerned, it is not limited to warriors. Mendicants, women, farmers, and even those below them know their duty, are ashamed to neglect it, and resign themselves to death; there is no distinction in this respect. The martial way of life practiced by warriors is based on excelling others in anything and everything. Whether by victory in an individual duel or by winning a battle with several people, one thinks of serving there interests of one's employer, of serving one's own interests, of becoming well known and socially established. This is all possible by the power of martial arts.

Look man there are always variables but only ronin were ok. The hired samurai and their codes along with the laws of their rulers were wasteful, unnecessary, cruel, grandeur promising false dreams.

>>69147 Yeah the caste system and unconditional obedience to authority were shortfalls for sure.
I wouldn't disregard the works that came out of that era though.

Osamu Dazai - No Longer Human
Waguih Ghali - Beer in the Snooker Club
Fyodor Dostoyevsky - Crime and Punishment

Your political bias shouldn't matter when you ask for something to educate yourself, by learning things about the world, on an emotional, intellectual, whatever level that's part of you being a single human. The best part of learning is a paradigm shift, where you see, process, and come to understand and accept that fundamental parts of your beliefs are wrong, but that something else is true. That's growing as a person, that's how you get smarter. If you just hold on to whatever you believe, unwilling to ever let it be contested, then you will never grow, like a strangled twig. Don't be a strangled twig. This is just a disclaimer, void of assumptions about you, or your person.

Gothic sci fi this ones hard to pinpoint for me. Would cyberpunk fit into this? There's certainly some gothic and atmospheric elements. So perhaps I'm streching a bit. But I'd still like to recommend this as an easy way to into cyberpunk.

If you want some of the real classic stuff, this link has a sampling of works from the late 1800s/early 1900s. I'd recommend starting with Robert W. Chambers and William Hope Hodgson if you've already read some of the more obvious ones like Poe and Lovecraft.

Though it would probably be considered one of "the basics," pic fucking related.

Also (though it's not sci-fi), for those who'd be in to southern gothic, I might suggest Flannery O'Connor; Wise Blood was a fucking trip.
