What does /lit/ think of writing while on/getting inspiration from drugs? Weed honestly maintains if not elevates my writing capabilities and LSD has made me write some insane shit which seems to make perfect sense at the time.
Famous poets have reportedly written masterpieces while on opiates etc so what do you guys think on the matter? I'll be interested to hear the responses.
Inb4 pic related btw
im pretty sure opiates chemically limit creativity or something but in my experience writing on coke (and to an extent pharmaceutical stimulants) is really something, shit just pours out and you can edit/quality control later if you want. booze also helps the words come but they always seem pretty stupid afterwards
I'm going to do it, /lit/.
50 pages a day, minimum. Non-fiction and literature exclusively.
How many pages do you read a day on average?
Around 50 too. Also non-fiction. Just finished Outsiders by Howard S Becker. Will finish the Capital now.
You'll notice pages have fewer or more words from book to book. Just stick to 50 and you're fine. If you feel you can go for 75 on special days after you've done them, don't hesitate.
>tfw been since december reading exclusively short stories
Write what's on your mind
Why haven't you read it yet?
>he literally thinks that the price/value of commodities can entirely be broken down into rent, profit, and wages
>he fucks up the only true advancement made by classic political economy--Quesnay
>can't distinguish between fixed capital, circulating capital, constant capital, and variable capital
>fails completely to account for constant capital in the reproduction of total social capital
Does anyone know any gut-wrenching/morbid literature/essays worth reading?
Something like Guts by Chuck Palahniuk.
I used to own a copy of Apocalypse Culture, that was fun. Lots of essays/interviews with "outsiders", some shit, some great (like that interview with the guy who hangs his skin on hooks to be closer to God)
Did you enjoy this /lit/? Why is ol' Hubert so angry?
Is it worth to write an autobiography if I lived in Russia then England, Europe and then in middle east? I would like to write another autobiography when I'm in Mexico, U.S.A and then Canada.
Hey guys I'm new here at /lit/ (been about 4 years on /g/ and /fa/ occasionally) and I don't know how things work around here but here we go.
I've been wanting to read pic related for a long time but I've read some reviews saying that it was gimmicky and it put me off a little. Can you recommend me books that deal with the same theme?
What do you think of Max Brooks and his book World War Z?
It is for teenagers and man-children. Adults should read real literature
Just got this translation from a used book store. Did I fuck up?
I don't write much fiction, but I'm currently in my college's "Advanced Creative Writing" this semester.
The whole class is to compose a "major work" - be it a collection of poems or a memoir - and draft it throughout the whole semester. The end goal is to get it published in an undergrad journal nobody will ever read except your mom because now their kid is "published."
Right now, I'm still doing pre-writing and research, so I am doing character write-ups. I was wondering what you guys do to develop characters...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I should have clarified, but I didn't want it to sound like I was asking people to write them for me:
I am writing a play. It's about a 4-member band (all male) in Portland, Maine. Scenes will jump around to all the different members of the band at various points in the day before they all converge on a show. They're all going to be in various stages of disarray.
I know none of you fucks have read this book. I know this book will strike home with too many of you not to post it.
Friend gave it to me and still haunts my thoughts almost daily 6 months later.
Can anyone recommend some good books on the heresiarchs & their beliefs?
Looking for something like Hillaire Belloc, but more definitive.
