Can someone please translate this piece of text that's in Armenian, into English for me thank you
>First things you do when you buy a book
I always check to see what percentage (kindle) it ends on. Generally the last 20 or 30 percent are Notes, Index and References etc.
ugh, e-readers? i like to feeeeeel the book, sniff it a bit, take it out to dinner, make it feel special. then i take it home and make passionate love to it. i love the feel of the paper cuts on my dick. i love the smell of my seamen on an old, yellowing book.
Hello again fellow wordsmiths and literary maniacs,
I humbly beseech you with a co-author request for a short 250pg 6x9" paperback and ebook to a book dedicated to the life of the Tile Lover of /v/.
That's right you read that right a book is in the process to both examine the life of a "tile fetishist" and tell such a creatures life story.
Classified in the biography-fiction section or "Tile Pattern Erotica" section of any library near you - that's right, there's no shame in exposing the tile lover.
At any rate, any of...

I'm looking forward to working with you on this comedic and utterly cringe piece of modern art.
I've been wondering since this whole writing assignment seems more than legendary if the whole of /lit/ should produce the final draft..
A collective work much like Shakesphere's work as it was authored by a troop of writers under the command of Bacon.
>perhaps we should do the same with this one..
Anyone read Master and Margarita? If so what did you think? I liked it a lot. Also anyone have any citable essays or critics writing on it/context or Bulgakov himself?
As a russian I really appreciate him for being one of the easiest/lighter classics of my motherland. I really loved his use of devil related lexis which ironic as hell. And his henchmen are just great
Which works of literature will best let me understand neurotypicals?
literally wtf is The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock anyway?
I can either take it for its face value projection of a creative introvert's (borderline autist's) take on the world and social conventions (with of course the quintessential 'I'm a good poet look at me' crap grinded into this exalted nihilist mortar). Or a means to which Eliot soon found amusement as the masses rushed to decode just why the fuck he put an extract from Dante's Inferno in his poem. Touche smeliot
Do I necessarily need any prerequisites on Nietzsche to take anything of value out of pic related?
And if so, where would you recommend to start?
I just started reading it and I'm already struggling with the concept of the Übermensch.
I think Twilight of the Idols is a better intro to his thought, HATH is loaded with good stuff but can get tiresome. I particularly liked his advice for writers and how in the first fifty or so pages he basically writes out the entire basis of Freud's body of work.

Can authors have a respectable family life? I ask because I'm 26, have a 3 year old daughter and find myself having constant conflict between my writing time/freedom/space/quiet and the pressures of my gf and child (to be honest its more the gf than the child) ie. constant moaning about never going out together and doing family stuff , even though I do, constantly belittling my writing attempts as pathetic, ie. I'm not living in the "real world". I should add she tricked me into a child and I've been living with the consequences ever since. You guys know how hard it is as a starting off writer with many failures and rejections and the criticism I get from home isnt helping, also I feel trapped and held back by chores, I am wondering whether I should break ties and move on. Honestly this thread is not a joke, I'm happy to provide further details but looking for honest advice please.
No I hear you OP. I'm in a similar position myself. I'm currently worldbuilding for my first novel and having a kid to look after really does distract me so much, it's hard to stay on track. Sometimes I'll be 'in the zone' writing some really epic part of the book and my wife's son will come in and ask if he can 'axe me a question' which of course I always do. But then when I try and get back to my writing I forget where I was and have to wait until inspiration strikes again. Good luck you my man.
What are his books about and are they worth reading?
Hey /lit/, I know you're supposed to have an outline for a story before you begin writing, but my only problem is I'm not exactly sure how to make an outline. What should an outline look like and have in it? What do your story outlines look like? Have any tips for making outlines? Thanks /lit/
Pic kind of related?
Write a logline. In about 25 words, identify the protagonist, his situation, and what challenge he faces.
Figure out the word count you need. This usually depends on the market you plan to submit the story to. Say a magazine wants stories of about 4,000 words.
Work out a three act structure. It's actually four acts but whatever. Each of these should be about equal in length.
Act 1: 1,000 words
Act 2A: 1,000 words
Act 2B: 1,000 words
Act 3: 1,000 words
There are plot points you need in or between each act, but that's a bit much to...

How many of you steal books? I see a lot of greentext stories of people doing so on here. For you book-thieves, do you think you are justified in doing so? Where do you steal from?
Yeah I do. I bring a backpack to book stores that don't have security cameras, and when no one is around, I take whatever I wanna pick up, store it in the backpack and leave.
The last book I stole was Persuasion.
Hey /lit/ I have a big final tomorrow which is over this book, and some others. Hardest book we read this semester so any major themes or concepts I need to remember?
decline of the Southern Aristocrat family
dysfunctional family drama
nihilism - from Mister Compson and from the title
Christ figure stuff with Benjy
more Christian themes in Reverend Daddy's sermon
futile male attempts to control female sexuality
who's an idiot? (hint who tells the tales? yes, even Harvard boy with the big vocabulary is an idiot in a way)
How hard is JR?
