What books are you waiting on/getting hyped for?
Joe Hill's new book comes out in May.
Stephen King's 3rd and final Bill Hodge's book (Mr. Mercedes sequel) is in June.

I actually have this exact copy. I work at half price books and I see this cover variation quite often do you have a HPB near you? You can call the stores and have it shipped to you or you could try searching on amazon if you haven't tried that already

I have two lol
One from a thrift shop and one from a box of free stuff someone put out near my house.

If it weren't a bannable offense to post personal contact info on 420chan I'd make a throwaway email so you can send me your address and I'd mail one to you.

I started out looking for all those dusty red covers but after finding the blue Berkley paperback of God Emperor and Heretics, I ended up getting the Berkley Chapterhouse too and I've been looking to complete the set ever since. I think they are my favorite covers. I'm not the type to horde/covet books but sometimes I just enjoy having beautiful and pleasing objects around me. I find the design really inspiring, as corny as that sounds. I feel like the aesthetic suits the subject matter.

Here is a link to a short, completed story I wrote today, about 4000 words. I wrote it specifically for an online publication that is offering money for short supernatural stories about sex toys lol. So basically a trashy porno rag. It ia just a first draft, I know the punctuation is shit and will fix that. I'm looking for narrative help and identifying which lines come off cringy. A coupe lines are shitty and just placeholders for something more clever down the line. But even if this is very low-rent, it will be worth it to get bragging rights for getting something published.

Help a brother out. I am OG 420chan and want you guys to read my amazing paranormal porno story. I could win a small amount of money for this shit! It's like penthouse forum meets Stephen King.
Please read this and critique before I submit it to them.
After hearing this contest was sex toy themed, I did research into vibrators until I came across this classic vibrator from the 20's (pic related) and it inspired the story that follows.

Paragraph 1 (P1) liked the reference to Skid Row and how rhymes with Marilyn Monroe.

Nix (delete) "Over the years", it feels like filler and the sentence sounds better without it.

Maybe flip the sentences and combine them for fluidity: "Some say it was not suicide but an accidental overdose, others accuse President John F Kennedy of being involved."

nix "in her death"

maybe get rid of "its impact was so wide that" and leave "The suicide rate in LA doubled." or maybe mess around with it to give more character, my suggestion still sounds a little weird.

P2 change "the" to "her"? Nix "still".
"to go down" feels weird, maybe "Not wanting to leave his patient with the legacy..."

Maybe nix "shopping bag", unless you especially like that detail and "that he brought back to his office." Sentence seems more succinct as: "..and packed it away." That he goes to his office is implied in the next paragraph, which is cool how you do that.

Thank you for the editing note. I wish you had finished it, not for the notes, but because my biggest worry still is that the sexy parts aren't sexy enough, and that the trippy/creepy scenes aren't trippy or creepy enough.
Thanks for the p1 notes, I'm taking pretty much all advice given.
I hadn't written in a few years, so I was using this weird contest subject matter to dust the skills off.

I did a bunch of editing, so here is the current version of the story, read this instead of the OP link http://textuploader.com/57ata
so if anyone wants to offer critique or editing notes or just thoughts on if the plot worked, I'd appreciate it.

I like the story! I have no clue how to edit. But it was well told, seemed researched, I started to have a crush on the main girl lol, it got sexy, then freaky. I was enjoying the sexy parts and pretty peeved when the ending happened. It was a good ending, just a downer, you killed my new waifu

judging by the replies so far, theres been a focus on innovation.

id like to mention these links for their creativity or atleast novelty

i think constrained writing does fit the description of being a creative and somewhat innovative way of using language. 'though i do admit that they may seem trivial, i think its fruitful to use them in order to redefine the scope of language
