Hey /lit/ bout to read this.
What can I expect? Will it tell me how to get bankrupted multiple times?
>how to get bankrupted multiple times
I think Trump is an insincere demagogue who is playing to the absolute lowest denominator and has no business in the election, and even I know that restructuring your business through bankruptcy is probably some of the smartest shit you can do in his situations.
>tfw you like the kindle but otherwise hate amazon
Is it still worth buying if you get your legal ebooks from other sources and convert them or would one be better off just getting a Kobo?
The kindle is a great product. It doesnt break or go bonkers, or if it does because of a corrupted file you just factory reset it. Ive had my first gen touch for 6 years now, and I have 0 complaints.
I also use Amazon for all major purchases because prime pays for itself. I bought an entire home gym, probably 1/2 a ton of equipment including a deadlift platform and plates for 0 shipping.
That said I pirate 100% of my books.
Name the best work of fiction published in the last 5 years.
Hard mode: no Bleeding Egde, no Pale King.
post something Borgesian ITT
if ur smart enough that is
A box whose contents are unknown can only be opened by a combination of words which form an ineffable word. The problem is, who is the creator of the box and what could possibly be its contents.
The fuck did you have to make the template resolution so high, OP?
The dust must have settled by now, and we can begin to appreciate just how autistic this abomination is and what has become of it. The book is enjoying a short-lived highlight on some book blogs and there are people dedicated to reading the entire thing: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpe3rJIwv3isMjyNJBzXC5Q
I think it's time to discuss what went so wrong but so right, what could have been done in the hindsight, et cetera. Anyways, alt-/lit/ thread.
Why is capitalism bad, /lit/?
because it's not fair that anyone has more money than me
I personally don't like it because it doesn't give me stuff for doing nothing in return. The current sort of centrist welfare state I live in does provide me with what I need though. Hybrid economies aren't perfect but they're the best we've got so far.
Is the best literature of the 20th century written in Spanish?
What was the last book you read?
What are you reading?
What will you read next?
Guess shit about each other basing on their answers.
Have you fapped to any book?
So I'm doing a paper on the works of Tolkien, and we just had a lecture todday on how The Lord of the Rings is essentially racist because of its Eurocentrism.
Is this really a valid criticism? Is it wrong for a man to write a story that takes inspiration from his own ancestry and culture? I feel like this is something that only a white man could be criticized for.
So how is Houellebecq? My university adviser loves and said If I liked pessimistic stuff I should check him out. What do you guys think? What books of his did you like or dislike?
How can you avoid cluttery dialogue? Most of my writing seems to feel like
"Text," PersonA said.
"Text?" PersonB asked.
"Text," PersonC said.
Is this alright or is there a better way to do it?
vary it up, give them physical motions. And often times you can inform who the speaker is by context, so you dont need to label them for each line..
And if someone is asking a question and you end it with a ?, you dont need to say "they asked"
Anon noticed the thread and wanted to help OP.
-Why doesn't he just do it like Joyce?
He then proceeded to write a meta post as an example.
-It may free you from having to think of synonyms of said, you only have to do it when you need to.
He remarked smilingly.
once established that its conversation between person a and person b, take out 'who-said-what'
"Text," PersonA said.
"Text?" PersonB asked
"PersonA replies, continues conversation?"
"It's called running dialogue, dumbass."
"Honestly, Colin, I never expected that sort of behavior from you,"
"Eat my metaphorical shit, Martha. Fuck you, and your unseasoned chicken."
