So, I started writing a novel in preparation of NaNoWriMo, so I could kinda remember what I'd had in mind. What do you guys think?

--

“The Glitter of a Prince”

The dry air of the crack mines of Mondo VI whistled softly tonight. The view from the solid crack rock bars milled from the wall was breathtaking. The first floor built into the mountain was a mile high, and adorned with barred windows for its unwilling denizens to look out of. A figure looms in this particular port, at the northeast alley of Ninja Grid; its features sharp and unwavering, as if carved from onyx. Rippled black muscle painted upon a skinny, malnourished frame. Jumbo Shoeshine was his chosen name.

And upon this serious and grimacing brow, a set up eyes look upward at the glaring twin moons, and a mind swears it heard the wail of an electric guitar moaning into the night.



The Cock Hall of Castle Phallus was of solid twenty-four karat gold. The cocks themselves were eight feet in height, three feet in diameter, and lined the halls to the east and west. Depending on how much the younger members of the Royal Court had to smoke that day, sometimes they counted fifty on either side, or as low as thirty-eight. But counting the cocks was but a child’s game, and gone were those halcyon days.

Tonight there was a strange red glow dancing off the phallic statues, condensed into a small point that sat upon a metal box; clearly some mage’s trickery. A cable ran into a small loudspeaker that produced unnaturally large noise for its size. And as the circuit cycled back to its origin, the nimble sandstone-colored fingers of the Prince Fetis II danced across a glassy black fretboard.

It's a society of crack smoking dick worshippers, and the tale of one young black ninja who fights back with smooth lyrics and funky bass.

Point taken about implying how the reader should feel.

I laughed at Jumbo Shoeshine. You have a good sense of humor, that's something you can't teach.

The description of this world is a little lacking. I understand that there's a dick castle and a crack rock mine, but there's not really any context for them. When you're starting of a novel, especially a fantasy/sci-fi affair like this, that has an exotic setting I think it's best to start really zoomed out, describing the world, and get more and more zoomed in, until we meet our main character.

You've done that to some extent, but I feel like you could flesh it out a lot more. Also try incorporating some other sensory descriptors, I'm sure the smell of burning crack rocks lay heavy in the air that night or something.

I have the same gripe with your main character. You're writing this in a kind of comic book, omniscient style so you can take the time to get into the visceral details of your character when you're introducing them.

Show don't tell, etc. Good luck with NaNoWriMo.

Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback. This is sort of a snapshot of what I want to do, kind of a Beggar Prince type story if it met Equilibrium. Mostly for my use, so I can know where to pick up when NaNoWriMo happens.

So your feedback is super important to me, and I appreciate anything else you have to say. I'll try and post again either mid or end of NaNoWriMo to see what people thing, before I edit.

I suggest doing the exact opposite of what >>68583 says. Why would you begin with a load of exposition? Start with a character doing what they do in the world. Let the reader figure out the shape of the world from who and what the character interacts with, does and experiences. Use exposition lightly or not at all.

I agree with this one. Start in the middle of the main character doing something cool and exciting, as you go through with the scene you can more naturally build the world around it. Some times you can't avoid some forced things like "Harry was an orphan boy..." but most of the time you can

Hey, we have a solid discord going (about 30 members) for discussion of literary and philosophical texts, as well as for sharing and critiquing original work. We alternate every 15 days between a philosophical text, a collection of poetry, and a "fringe" text, usually psychology, anthropology, or occult.

Invites close next Wednesday, so if you are interested in checking it out, definitely give it a look. We start reading Spinoza's "Ethics" tomorrow. Feel free to join in or post work.

If you take random suffixes and prefixes and stick them together you can make some great pseudo-nonsense. I say pseudo because the words can be said to have meanings granted by their component parts, but they're generally useless and not in any dictionary.

Tagore was referenced and quoted quite a bit in a book I recently read and I'm really enjoying his poetry - notably in Fruit Gathering and Stray Birds. I haven't read anything else of his yet, though I do have some arriving in the mail for when I finish what I'm currently reading. I wondered if anybody else of /lit/ had come across Tagore, would personally recommend any of his work or even similar writers. I'm not very drawn to poetry at all - I've never enjoyed it or gained anything from it until reading these.

Ever since I found Gitanjali in a book donation bin in high school he has been my favorite poet. Everything in Git is beautiful and if you want more I have seen "collected works" by him in Barnes and Noble(I can't speak for that though)
The best part about the Gitanjali is that he wrote the English translations himself(I just I knew Hindi so I could read the original)
Also, get the version with the introduction by Yeats (yeah that Yeats) and count yourself lucky you have one of the best books in the goddamned world(imho)

I liked how he explained how huge every piece of technology would be at the party only for everything to get so much smaller.

I kept thinking the overlords were to kind to be good. But they're just as in as of the overmind as humans were of them. Like, why couldn't Jan take a picture of it? They're doing just what he humans were doing to them, study it.

They could harm everyone at a bullfight the overmind probably has some power over them. They're like angels and god. Only the angels are demons and god and heaven are one eternity as a single being for who knows why. And the demons can't join it for some reason, and they seem immortal too.

I wonder why the overmind was on their planet, and why the conquered it.

Does this count as reading?

Recently "read" The Hobbit and Neuromancer. Enjoyed both of them greatly but I got to thinking: Reading has many benefits like improving ones vocabulary and other shit, so am I negating any of this by just listening to books instead of reading them?

My favorite book is still Horus Rising because it shows the truly depthless love Horus has for his father, and how uncorrupted that dream once was.

The saddest moment in the whole series I feel is when Horus asks Loken after Molech to re-join with him and the Sons of Horus in "the greatest endeavor mankind has ever made" and Loken thinks for a moment and says "I was... it was called the Great Crusade." That moment tore my heart out more than Angron on Deshlicka Ridge, Because to me when Loken utters those words the Emperors dreams and Great Crusade are truly finally dead, even the horrors of Istvann, Calth, the death of Ferrus Manus, none have the world ending finality of that line.

What are peoples thoughts on the Primarchs?

bump with this pic, I don't think any other GW picture has come as close to how I mentally pictured Jago Sevatarion, I think he looks like a vampire mixed with a thug which is exactly what the Night Lords are! cooooool

Most of the books are good but there's some pretty bad ones. Descent of Angels I think it was? Fucking god awful book. Any of the Death Guard ones I love cause I used to play 'em back in the day. Garro is a fucking boss.

The Outcast Dead was really good, really cool idea with the dudes imprisoned on Terra and having them from different legions. There was one, maybe it was Outcast Dead, that starts with a dude trying to sneak into the Imperial Palace, one of my favourite sections of any of the books.

I think some of the best ones are the those that deal with the start of the Heresy, the fall of the various Primarchs like Fulgrim and Mortarion. There was one short story I read that was especially good that was the first time Angron met his legion and how they get the name World Eaters.

The craziest ones though have to be Deliverance Lost and Legion. All the mad shit the Raven Guard and Corax go through is just insane; the Dropsite Massacre, the vaults on Terra and aftermath while Legion is just plain fucking nuts with the Cabal.

Anyway, fucking great series, I should get back into reading them.

Does any know what angle or who Erebus is actually working or what? Cuz right now in the series no one likes him and he's doing dittly squat to move the heresy forward other than being the tunnel for horus and khans rape train to violate
