Anyone writing? Post what you're writing and get ideas/feedback

I'm working on a uncanny vally book where a guy gets stranded in a weird town. Unsure why, and it's really not progressing trying to tie things together like why the town is coo-coo. NFI what I'm doing at this point.

Trying to develop a narrative on the uncertainty of a lot of our society and how it effects us as spiritual beings. Internet, commodification of culture and existence, the black hole of drugs, crime, ideology. Thinking of tying it into a source portal that is corrupting the townspeople and a man has to struggle to try and survive and flick the switch off on this portal before it and the townspeople get him.

What are you guys reading right now?

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.

I'd like to learn more about history but my attention span isn't the greatest and I have trouble reading even fantasy novels, so I need something that's not too dry or hard to get through. I want a book that's a real page turner but will also educate me about historical events.

What are some history books you found highly engaging and easy to read? Any period in history is fine.

I'm slowly getting through Robert Fisk's "The Great War for Civilization". He's an awesome war correspondent who does his best to remain neutral in his assessment of the middle east, its history of foreign interference and the consequences of such interference. It's not too dry as a lot of it reads more like his own memoirs than a standard history book.

I recently bought a book of translations of Old English poetry and am enjoying it a lot. I used to read a lot of REH as a kid (Conan, kull, Solomon) and a lot of the poetry in this collection reminds me of the heroic adventure type poetry that REH wrote.

Do you guys know of any recommendations for other poetry along these lines? Narrative poems that deal with battles, traveling, exotic lands, etc. I'm mostly familiar with the epics like Homer, Gilgamesh, Beowulf, Theogony, etc but I'm looking for poems that are more in the shorter formats.

Here's one OP: Winter Rose

"The rains began.
Hard, constant, they battered the fields, turned the roads to mud, crushed the gold leaves into the ground and turned them black. In the wood, the sodden trees and brambles bowed beneath the torrents. Leaves fell, clung limply to vines and wildflowers, slowly buried them beneath their sodden weight. Work in the fields, on Lynn Hall, stopped, though I heard him hammering inside, the time or two I ventured into the wood. I went to the well once: the rain-kissed water gave me nothing, not even my reflection. Another time, near evening, when the rains had grown gentle, drops flecking the air like tiny fireflies, I went to gather the last of the crab apples for Beda. So i told myself: I had to pass the ruined hall to reach the tree. Smoke came out of a chimney, smelling sweetly of birch and maple. Crispin had brought him a wagonload of seasoned wood. I did not see him.

Most of the time, I stayed in the house, sewing beside Laurel, or watching the rain. I had frightened myself in the wood: I did not know, anymore, what was true. If I had invented a world that none of us lived in, then the true world was Laurel's, predictable, dependable, with no secrets and no stray midnight gold that turned to leaf by morning. Corbet Lynn had not walked out of light, but had ridden a horse into the village;Laurel loved Perrin as always, and I wanted them there. I made myself teas of camomile and vervain to soothe my thoughts, and watched Laurel move calmly through her world. She never paced, or pulled a window open to feel the rain, the wind; she never moved without grace or purpose. She never went barefoot.

So I wore shoes and braided my hair, and made lace for her wedding dress, as if I sewed time and promises into each airy loop and every inch of it bound Laurel more securely..."

That's interesting! Do say more

I'm just starting to get into some Buddhism, the idea of cultivating Bodhicitta appeals to me. It's like that universal love for mankind that Jesus talked about, but without all that higher power taint. There are also practical exercises for how to attain it, where as in Christianity we were just told to love our smelly neighbor, we were never told how on earth to do that.

What about The Way?

Also, there's John Cowper Powys mayhaps,
"n. Powys combines twentieth-century introspection and analysis of the relations between men and women with the social panoramas, humour and prolixity of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century novelists. The uninitiated might do worse than to attempt to imagine an amalgam of Lawrence and Dickens, Hardy and Dostoievsky, Proust and Scott. To these great names two others need to be added: that of Wordsworth, in order to suggest Powys’s characteristic attention to and communion with the natural world, animate and inanimate; and Blake’s, since Powys shares his reverence for life and belief that ‘everything that lives is holy’, as well as his radical rejection of the established order.2 It is also a commonplace of Powys criticism that he possesses an empathy with women, an entry into the minds and feelings of women, unrivalled by any other male writer.3"

1 See, for example, Boris Ford (ed.), The New Pelican Guide to English Literature (Harmondsworth: Penguin, 8 vols., 1983), VII, pp. 86, 99, 187–90, and VIII, pp. 68, 100; Boris Ford (ed.), The Cambridge Cultural History of Britain (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 9 vols., 1992), VIII, pp. 37–8. The writers are John Holloway, the Leavisite Denys Thompson, and Wilfrid Mellers and Rupert Hildyard.Goodway
2 For Blake, cf. Glen Cavaliero, John Cowper Powys: Novelist (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1973), pp. 105–6. The other principal work of literary analysis is G. Wilson Knight, The Saturnian Quest: A Chart of the Prose Works of John Cowper Powys (London: Methuen, 1964). See also the seven items on Powys in G. Wilson Knight, Neglected Powers: Essays on Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Literature (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1971); and Jeremy Hooker, John Cowper Powys(Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 1973).

Rate my novel I'm working on lads. Here's the gist of it.

>a soldier called Eddie gets kicked out of the British army for deserting so he returns to his home in Liverpool. He struggles with PTSD, anger issues and alcoholism. Finding it hard to assimilate to civilian life, he gets a job working as a security guard for a shopping mall. He dreams of someone attacking him with a knife so he has an excuse to beat them senseless. Among all of this, he has an unexpected child with a woman he has fallen out of love with but he tries to stick with her for the sake of the child. Eventually the friction becomes overbearing so he moves out of the house and lives in his car. He begins to have delusions that his car is a ship and that he is a pirate sailing the high waves. He eats limes to prevent scurvy and he drinks copious amounts of rum.

This is what I have so far, any ideas where I could take it?

I said excuse the Spanish because the Saramago book and the Gaiman book were translated to Spanish.

And yeah, so far I'd say it's the best book I've read from him (although I've only read Blindness and Seeing). It reminds me of The War of the End of the World by Mario Vargas Llosa in many ways, which is a book I love. Surprisingly enough, the way he presents the events leading up to the crucifiction and Jesus' own life are fairly... Christian, in a way. A surprise considering he was a notorious atheist.

Amazon is complete shit these days. More than half the time shit shows up late anymore. And 90% of the books I've ordered in the past 4-5 years have showed up damaged because they can't be bothered to package books properly. They used to shrink rap all their books to cardboard which was excellent for shipping. Now it's either a cheap plastic bag or they just throw the book loose into a box that's 5x as big as the fucking book.

And yeah, I've gotten editions of books that are completely different than what was advertised. One time it wasn't even the same fucking publisher. Createspace which is amazons house imprint is a fucking joke too, I got a copy of the gadfly that was literally a copy and paste from Gutenberg.

Fuck Amazon if you weren't sure where I was going with this.

some people like having nice things for the sake of having nice things. Why is it difficult to understand why this would be upsetting?

What how fucking pretentious. I bet you wouldn't even buy a jar of chocolate spread if the label was covered in pictures of diarrhoea and wouldn't wear pink clothes that are studded with rhinestones in the shape of a limp penis. So fucking superficial.

Interesting, I never really looked into what that term meant. I'm surprised that people say "painstaking" regularly enough that it's become a source of jimmie-rustling for you.
I get really fatigued by people throwing around words like "spiritual", "blessed", "holistic", and the like, particularly if used to denote one thing or action as "more spiritual" than another. It isn't these words themselves that irritate me but the smug attitude that often seems to surround them.
These conversations also seem to involve a lot of fancy language and references that one doubts the speaker understands to any meaningful degree.
Certainly I'm guilty of this myself, but more often in writing than in daily conversation (as this post is likely evidence of).
