Somewhere six beads of water crystallize into a tiny frozen hexagon to form a single flake of snow that navigates the air waves towards the earth below.
Somewhere a deer looks up from its dinner and towards you, startled by you, only to run away into the darkness.
Somewhere smoke rises up from the trees into the winter night.
Somewhere in these north woods a thick dump drops into a black hole.

Part II: Pseudeboda Gambiae.

“Do you believe there is life after death?”

There must be something.

“Yes, there must be.”

I hope you will be there in heaven with me.

“What would I do without you?”

You would be lonely.

“Do you believe in soul mates?”

Yes.

“Can you identify the presence of your soul?”

Of course.

“Did I tell you today that you’re the best?

Well. You are.”

Thanks Chryssy.

Part III: Man Detrimental.

The black winter from outside pours into the room.
Edgar holds a poisonous body in his arms.
His disgusting purple corpse glows neon green.
Furious nature blasts into the room.
I rush over to close the door.
“MY FRIEND IS DYING PLEASE HURRY!” Edgar screams.
The black smell fills my nose.
I cover my nose from the terrible scent.
“What happened to him?” I ask in a panic.
Kylon is silent, purple, and glowing.
Black smoke rises from his pores.
I am thinking fast. What are these symptoms?
Chryssy is one step ahead of me.
“We can preserve his personality within my drivespace if we plug in the BINKY backwards.”
I agree.
But we won’t be able to save this tormented body.
Tears stream from Edgar’s windburned face.
“We must save Kylon!”
“Bring him over here.”
I motion to the workbench and help him carry the body.
I swipe away tools and containers onto the floor.
The black cat is shocked and bolts away to the other side of the room.
We lay the soldier’s body flat.
His purple veins tremble.
Green fluid oozes from his melting face.
I connect a black hose to his neck.
Edgar notices all the strange equipment in the room and asks, “Where are we, miss?”

And lead us not into temptation.
But deliver us from Evil.

The black angel rises from the table.
The dark eyeholes behind its porcelain mask light up red.
The black angel picks up the sword from Kylon’s body on the floor and raises it above its head, far above Edgar.
Kylon’s voice comes from behind the mask of the black angel.
“Amen.”

The blade pierces Edgar’s chest.
He moans in agony.
Blood sprays onto the floor behind him.
Kylon removes the blade.
“No mercy.” Kylon speaks.
He lifts up my limp body with one powerful hand of the black angel.
He holds me by the neck.
“No quarter.” Kylon says.
He squeezes tight and crushes my neck.
I can no longer breathe.
He throws my body across the room.
I smash into workshop equipment.
The boiling soup spills across the floor.
As he moves away from the table, the pipes and hoses pull tight and disconnect forcefully, spraying black liquid wildly.
Kylon admires his new mechanical hand.
The cat brushes against the leg of his new black angel body.
Kylon bends down and grasps the head of the cat and pushes, gnashing its skull into the wooden floor.
Putting it out like a cigar.
He flings its lifeless body into the fireplace.

I was reading and it occurred to me that I do not put a face to any of the characters nor do I bother trying to empathize with them.

Do you put faces to your characters? Do you empathize with them? What are your reading habits?

I guess I do in the most basic sense, like rough facial expressions when they're described, or flashes of memories of events similar to what's going on in the story. I definitely empathize with characters though, depending on how engaging the story is. I find it hard to empathize with characters in poorly in written stories, or characters with beliefs that I strongly disagree with.

>J. R. R. Tolkien was a fat and an enthusiastic pothead. His stories were created around the simple Freytag's pyramid (Tolkien barely knew the basics of exposition) and dialogue was composed of few clever jokes or songs that were thought up during his "blaze".

>LoTR would not enjoy any mainstream popularity had not there been a constant herd of competent writers around Tolkien, to repair the books into a publishable condition. J. R. R. was constantly shitfaced but his only way to deal with the matter was to twist the jokes about the addiction because he simply couldn't admit the problems with his lifestyle. After all, the only merit of this "greatest author on earth" is how many Elvish songs he could write about being high.

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.

In reviewing these letters to myself, the writing of which has been the only project thus far that I've stuck to in any meaningful sense, the thing I'm struck the most by, aside from how ridiculously self-aggrandizing an effort this is in the first place, is how repetitive they've become over time.

I was doing bad, but now I am doing good. I am doing bad. This will fix the bad. The bad has been fixed, I am doing good. I am doing bad. This will fix the bad. That really fixed the bad, I really am doing good now. I am doing bad. I am doing really bad. THIS will fix the bad. Whew that did it, I am doing better. I am doing good. I am doing less good. I am doing bad. THIS will fix the bad, once and for all. I am doing good. I am doing GREAT. So I just got out of the hospital... That did it though, I've learned, I've grown. So I just got out of the hospital...

And on, and on, and on.

I've always been unbearably fickle -- capricious and never truly satisfied. Always in search of something, and always in search of what that something was. Seneca said of me: "she follows no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, plunged by her fickleness into plans that are ever new, having no fixed principle by which to direct her course, but Fate takes her unawares while she lolls and yawns".

Aware of the painful irony and the probability this will just make me look very silly in the not too distant future, I contend that I've broken the cycle.

After a childhood alone but not lonely, completely ensconced in my imagination, I had a largely sad and bitter adolescence as my ability to function on my island of fantasy, accompanied only by myself and my increasingly deranged thoughts, dwindled.

Around the time I came of age, I had managed to at least develop a close circle of friends, with whom I was far closer to than they were to me. I got a job. I got money. And with that money, I discovered drugs. And in drugs, I finally found a home.

Altering my state of consciousness broke me out of my old patterns of thought. I became less bitter and more open. I became kinder, more compassionate; to myself and to others. As I was becoming a more likeable and well-adjusted person, I was also thrust into a subculture where I finally had a place. I had an excuse for being so weird and met countless people, most of them also weird, who not only didn't care about my eccentricities, they actually LIKED me for them. They thought I was kind, personable, interesting, creative, intelligent; all character traits which I would never have dreamed of using in reference to myself.

I finally felt like my life had started. I made more friends and did more drugs, and made even more friends. I met one guy in particular who I spent a lot of time wasting time with. Eventually, he became the first person I ever truly loved. Almost certainly unrequitedly. No matter what I try to tell myself.

I became a better person. I learned and I grew. Slowly the hatred that had built up from being trapped in a morass of self-loathing eroded away, setting the stage for my slow journey towards self-acceptance.

Over time, as I continued to learn and grow, what was originally motivated by idle curiosity and myopic pleasure-seeking became an integral part of a holistic approach to improving myself and developing my newfound spiritual life.

Can see the walls squirm, feel the air writhe as it enters my nostrils. Hall a cramped tube, a virtual deathtrap. Pray to God no neighbors come out before I reach my door. Would probably scream, run back outside to my car. These people are vile enough on a good day; with the plague afoot, they’re guaranteed to be ground zero for contamination. God knows what filthy places they frequent while the rest of us are out trying to make a living.
My just-concluded supermarket trip was a disaster. People online say they’ve seen shoppers fighting over toilet paper, rolls of paper towels. I missed all that: my trip yielded naught but empty shelves. No eggs, tuna, or tampons to be seen. Stocked up on the few canned goods left in stock. Saw a cute guy—or, at least I think he’d be cute if he took off the breathing mask.
Finally at my apartment door, I twist the key, flop through the entrance. Slam it home, bolt bolt. Rush to bathroom and bathe in rubbing alcohol. Please Christ, don’t let me be infected. I was only outside for thirty minutes!
Hyperventilate a while, then put groceries away. Surf the web. For hours. News, news, drama, drama. President said something dumber than yesterday, scared people worse than ever. At least the virus has put a squash on mass shootings. Same for mass-anything. Well, except for mass hysteria. Practice social distancing and call Big Brother on anyone who doesn’t.
All my friends have gotten into cybersex with European dudes, but I still miss the intimacy of real dates. In real restaurants, holding real hands, grinding real groins. Besides, I’m not the President, I’m not content with any hottie with a stupid accent.
Schools went on permanent summer break; now bands of bratty kids roam the apartment hallways, wiping their dirty hands on people’s doorknobs, licking car handles in hopes of spreading infection. Little bastards should be rounded up and shot. Same for their parents.
Christ, when will this end? Maybe I should pray harder.
Wait, what’s that I hear through the wall? Could it be? It is! Coughing! Someone’s sick! I fucking knew it! Five cans of Lysol later and I still don’t trust the wall between us. Should call the CDC, get this freak carted off. Can feel the virus trying to crawl between the cracks in the plaster, invisible chthonic tendrils reaching in, tussling my hair before pushing past my lips, burrowing down my gullet and flopping around inside my lungs, coating me with their infectious ooze.
“Not on my watch!”
Hall between apartments reeks of marijuana. Could that be the source of the coughs? Damn bongers—don’t they know smoking marijuana on property grounds is a violation of their lease? If the landlord wasn’t in self-quarantine, he’d be slapping an eviction notice on their door this very instant.
Move to pound their door, then stop. Picture all the germs writhing across the surface. Fuck that. “Hey,” I shout. “I know you’re in there, sickie! You better go to the hospital before you get us all killed!” Not sure if I’m being heard, “And stop coughing on my wall!”
My bedroom feels like enemy territory. Anything could be compromised. What if the kids got in while I was shopping? They could have done anything: wore my clothes, brushed their teeth with my toothbrush, blown their noses into my couch cushions. Abandon ship!
The very thought leaves me puking in the bathroom sink. As I’m washing the chunks down the grate, a pounding starts from outside. “Don’t think I didn’t hear that,” someone hollers. “You’re sick! I’m calling 911.”
I press my face flat against the door, shouting through the crack, “I’m not sick, you nosy little shit! The only thing I’m sick of is people like you!”
“Fuck that,” they snarl. Stomping away, “Do the world a favor and kill yourself.”
Dammit! Are they really calling the fuzz? What if I get carted off to the plague pit? I’m too cute for the plague pit! I may not be sick, but I will be after being thrown in with the rest of the infected. The mere thought makes me want to puke again, but now that I know the neighbors are spying, I can’t let myself. Forehead drenches eyebrows with perspiration; eardrums ring with whine. Breathing in short, jerky gasps. Limbs shaking. Anxiety? Why now, at a time like this? Curse you, body—always turning against me when I need you most.
Time to restore some sanity to this madhouse. Tired of living in fear; I’m ready to reclaim my life. A couple minutes later finds the halls between apartments thoroughly s…

Anyone here reading Abdullah Ocalan? It's interesting to be able to read the theory behind the revolution taking place amidst the Syrian Civil War. It's all written in the prison of Imrali Island as well; he's like the Antonio Gramsci of our age.

As I know Öcalan was the most wanted man in Turkey for almost two decades until his kidnapping and arrest in Nairobi in 1999. He has been in Prison ever since. After I figured that out I read his book - Prison writings. I really liked it and used that as my essay topic https://writingcheap.com/ and did it well.
I'm not trying to convince anybody to read his books but Abdullah Ocalan is quite an interesting author in my opinion and he released enough good books to read. IMAO

Are they legit /lit/? I've been reading alot more graphic novels as of late, and they're alot quicker reads, but if good, equally as deep as literature can be. What you think? Are graphic novels a part of /lit/ or are they just comics?

While we're on this subject, genre is a good way to categorize books, but it also limits how dynamic a book can be with multiple genres and grappling with tons of ideas, but has to be labelled as one genre.

I don't believe a fucking word of that garbage about how DMT allegedly helps you open up your mind because if Spiritualism is real then that means Heaven Exists and if Heaven Exists then why do I need to take a prescription to become closer to god that is what the bible is for

Three kings and a jack, traveling down the road.
The road is it, it calls them all, with only time as their foe.
The curtain like clouds, blind them all.
Nothing's certain, nothing's forever

Hey /lit/ finding myself with a lot more time on my hands these days. I kind of feel like writing again but I want to give poetry a shot this time. Used to write a lot of short stories but I haven't in many years what little I did with poetry was way back in highschool and I remember nothing.

Anyone have some good book suggestions that cover the structure/form of different kinds of poetry, something I desperately need a refresher in. And just recommendations on some poetry collections in general that would be worth reading. Thanks guys.

when you seriously consider writing in verse, as a contemporary american, you find that we pronounce all of our shit colloquially in a retarded manner (untrue to the original and true form). it is literally (another retarded colloquialism) retarded to attempt serious poetic verse as an american living in 2019
