Educate me on German Idealism, please.
My idea is very, very well fleshed out but it involves following the basic plot of a piece of literature. I've started writing 20 pages, but this bothers me. How do I not shit on it? I'm thinking about reading pic related to give me an idea of it.
First drafts will always be shit. Just write whatever the fuck you want and then re-edit/re-write when you're done.
Joyce did Homer on a whim.
I'd say your problem is that your idea is very, very well fleshed out. What you think about when not actually writing is usually worthless. Give yourself space to create, make adjustments as you go based on what (so far) lives on the page instead of some outline or grand ideal you have.

What does /lit/ think about "The Five People You Meet in Heaven"? I just finished it, so I would like to hear your opinions on it.
checked its plot on the wiki
imo the afterlife should be something more interesting than sitting alone in some forever the same place to meet some recently died people related to you and when those end to sit there alone (ok, in the company of some phantoms) forever

I've been struggling to force myself to read recently. Since I was a child I've had trouble paying attention and when I try to read my mind wanders quite a lot. My reading ability is fine, however. Do any of you struggle with similar issues? If so, how do you combat them?
Which book'll make me follow through on the ideas/beliefs i'm too lazy to enact?
Anyone else hyped?
Just finished pic related and I honestly did not anticipate the sorrow I felt reading the last couple of chapters.
Is there supposed to be some sort of ultimate point to this story? Was it supposed to be a parody reflecting Cervantes's thoughts on Chivalry? Or was Cervantes's goal to write an emotionally provocative story with no 2deep4u meaning?
Does anyone really think this book is sorrowful or did they just get meme'd by Dostoevsky and other romantics?
It's hilarious and it would be impossible for Quixote's death to be more melodramatic. IIRC, Cervantes even explicitly states that he is killing off Don so that no one else can use them for their stories.
I mean I guess you could interpret that as 2 DEEP 4 U 27th dimension tragedy but come on, be real.
