Is anyone here trying to write a novel while working a full-time office job?
For the first few months it was ok but now my energy and focus are completely drained. I work from 8:30am to 5:30pm with a 30 minute commute each way. The work is glorified data entry and most of my day is spent not working. Staring at a screen for 8-9 hours and killing so much time is really getting to me. It seems time-killing is an essential aspect of office life but I fear I'm wasting the most productive years of my life being a submissive cuck for the sake of security.

Work + College is a tough schedule, so can be highschool, but it's almost summer and lots of highschoolers and College kids are working full time jobs. Just because you're balding you're experiencing more legitimate misery?
I've written plays while working a couple of part time jobs (48 hours total). Fortunately on one of those jobs (night watchman) I could write for about half my shift.
I'm thinking of converting one of my plays to a novel, since no theater wants to hire a cast of 15 for an unknown writing about foul mouthed drunks and drug addicts.
Recently turned 18. Looking at my life in retrospect and realized that I'm on the path to degeneracy.

What are some books that will help me legitimately improve my life?
Go hiking for a few days and meditate in nature. Self-help is a meme. There is only your will, your aspirations, your compass, your understanding.
Also, get the fuck off of 4chan and go talk to someone. Now.
Fuck this is hard to read. The writing style is weird. Does it get worse?
At barnes and noble. What should I get?
Who /Nick Land/ here?
whats some of the shit you read in highschool?
and dont lie - its called highschool-tier for a reason.
I read nothing but genre fic (Pratchett, other stuff I can't remember) in lower years levels of HS because that's what my friends read, I realised I didn't like it and gave up on reading, read random shit between then and Year 11.
Then, I read Blood Meridian on a whim and realised what I'd been missing out on. After that, in my last 2 years I read more McCarthy, Faulkner, Kafka and Borges' short stories, Pynchon's and Joyce's easier stuff, and lots of Hesse.
Highschool was the most pretentious time in life. I was really influenced by the elitists on here. Dostoevsky, Sartre, Tolstoy, Kafka.
Five years ago.
First time I read C&P was at Saturday school.
Anyone read Vollmann? He writes a fuckton and I believe that he is easily the greatest American author of generation X. Anyone plan on reading the 2000 page unabridged edition of The Dying Grass that comes out this year?
Why is Marxism so attractive to the academic class?
Why is a bourgeois institution so intent on patronizing the working class?
Post peices of literature that women will never understand.

Why are people so smug about the fact that they read books?
-a lot of people don't read books, so it's harder to find people to connect with about reading- putting your interest out on the internet helps you find likeminded people
-people think reading books makes you intellectual or interesting
Anyone into cinema theory?
I've read Bazin, Tarkovskiy, Deren, a bit of Chion and a bit of Daney. Anything else interesting?
I'm french btw, if it helps to pick some books.
b-but it looks really fucking hard, I don't know that much about philosophy & I think Deleuze makes a lot of references to psychoanalysis and semiotics.
Anyway I didn't consider that, I'll take a look at these. Thanks anon.
