How do I get into writing erotica for women.
It sadly seems as the only way to make money nowadays :(
Any books that are considered erotica "classics" I can learn from?
Just got this
This thing is a joke. I've gotten vastly different results by putting in different things that I've written that were all in basically the same style. Even different sections of the same text.
Who wrote the Quran?
ITT: post tier lists of (somewhat) popular literature
How the fuck are we supposed to read the Western Canon and write our works while being so bogged down by "real life?!"
Etc. How do you combat this? I have to study and work and I am too tired all the time.
Is it just a lack of self-confidence? I.e.
>I could just be a barista or something and make small money and have an easy "real life" with lots of time/mental energy, but...

You literally just said it. Be a barista and enjoy the free time. People will call you a loser, but who cares? Live with roommates or your parents, get used to spending little money, and read as much as you can.
I'm a NEET and moved back in with my parents after college. No job. Read 6-9 hours a day. Basically live $10 at a time, and occasionally am stuck home with no money to even go out for coffee. And I fucking love it.
Thinking about tackling this behemoth /lit/. The question is: Would I enjoy it without the help of any other text? Did Joyce want it to be confusing and uncomprehensible for the most? Would reading it aloud help me savour at least the musicality of it?
I read everything else from Joyce btw, if that is of any help.
you can read any piece of literature and not get anything out of it. what you pull is from your own ability to close read, extrapolate, and comprehend what the letters on the pages mean.
finnegans has a 'skeleton key' online. read the book with it if you like. make a decision. safety is overrated. go into it.
Which book changed your life?
Mein Kampf by Hitler
Art of the Deal by Trump
The Moral Landscape by Harris
On Women by Schopenhauer
Decline of the West by Spengler
Ride the Tiger by Evola
Took me from brainwashed sheeple to redpilled philosopher-King
I've finally gotten around to buying the first book. I've heard lots of good things about the Wheel of Time series. Had it recommended to me from friends who knew other authors I liked.
Shall I be pleased in the reading to come?
This is blowing my mind. I've tried reading Levi-Strauss as he is pretty much identified with 20th century anthropology but I didn't get him.
What would you consider a comprehensive next read?
I think I'm falling for the thick description as it has analytical roots and seems more spot on to me.
oh i remember that feel. it blew me too when i found it. specially his essay on religion. and you could read his further essays, local knowledge. or you could try symbolic anthropology, such as victor turner or mary douglas.
his essay anti-antirelativism is a particularly good one, i dont remember if it is in LK or in available light.
also, anthropology is too much for lit so dont expect much answers.
ah and dont give up on levi strauss. he is worth the effort even if of course he is not good as a start. as a hint i can tell you that reading structural linguistics helps, cause he is basicalle doing the same but exchanging language for culture. jakobson, troubetzkoy and the prague cirlce in general. saussure and benvniste too if the others are too abstract.
Any good books to learn about Libertarianism? (please none from the American point of view, just neutral ones)
best books for starting theology and moving up afterwards? like from beginner to expert
Im looking for somethig romantic.
English, philosophy, art history, and film studies are interesting to me but I'm also weeaboo trash into East Asian cultural studies.
What the fuck do I choose, /lit/. Any essential texts in any of these subjects that'd give a better picture of the field?
