Post the last book(s) you have read. It would be nice if you add a synopsis or review as well, but it's not a requirement. Just seeing a snapshot of what other image-board anons are reading is itself awesome.

I haven't read the Eclouges or the Georgics so I would not be able to compare Virgil's epic poetry to his pastoral poetry. I felt that the translator did a good job because I was felt so impressed and moved by Virgil's poetry that I re-read the Aeneid like five times in less than half a year.

Nice pic. I'm reading the Metamorphoses now.

Greetings fellow /lit/erati!

Here are the rules:

1. Follow the Global Rules.

2. Try to keep things literature related.

3. No spamming.

4. No illegal content.

Guidelines and FAQ: https://8kun.top/lit/oddsandends.html

Regarding the missing board banners, this appears to be a site-wide issue. I will attempt a restore after this is fixed.

Regarding the related boards list … well.

/philosophy/ made it over originally with /lit/. Welcome /fanfic/. Glad you guys held the torch during the down time. Welcome back /cyber/ and /pdfs/. This leaves only /scifi/ aka "Asimovian Polemics". I am still open to suggestions.

That is all.

Let your minds and fingers roam free!

Do you read, write, or edit a zine?

Here's how it's going to work;

-You post your story under 3000 words. I recommend that it's an introduction to your story, or a short story. Of course, you can post endings or middle chapters if you want, but you'd be a massive idiot.

-If you use google docs I'm not reading it

-If it's over 3000 words i'm not reading it.

-If you didn't upload to google docs and its under 3000 words I'll read your story.

-If you have shitty grammar and spelling, a terrible prose, or you write your sentences like

"Madamn's chagaron soul window fevered insibiously into the untransited elevate sunset as the moservier sagrated chivalriously in such-"

I'm going to call you out on it and stop reading

-If your story makes it past the previous checkpoints I'll finally give my opinion on what you actually want to hear

(Is the setting interesting?

Are the characters interesting?

Do I want to keep turning the page to read more?

Is your pacing good or bad?

Would I pay for this?)

Come on anon, I know your inner voice is killing your self confidence as a writer and you're secretly begging for validation. You know you want it. Post it.

> This is the first chapter bundle of a larger work. It's 6,211 words for over four chapters, but you could read the first two chapters.

I only read the first chapter.

The very first paragraph is describing 4 different planets that I don't give a crap about.

Next, the assassination scene is, just straight up, boring. I see you're trying to depict the cool sniper guy getting frustrated and trying to escape, but I can't feel any emotion from what should have been a major fuck up, guy just sounds like a robot as he jumps down a rooftop and breaks his legs.

Then we meet the blond guy… and then you throw in statements such as "Everyone knows blond andriods are evil", when I the reader, didn't.

I'm not feeling any sort of direction or motivation from anyone at all, probably cause the characterization is nonexistent, and there is no plot being defined.

Basically, this story has no plot, and the characters are boring to me.

> 2,000 word short story.

This one is sightly better than the previous one, but thats only because of a couple factors;

-It's set in the real world, so the shitty infodumping is cut out and unneeded.

-Your characters actually face an interesting dilemma, that I can understand would make them face some consequences, unlike the other story where sniper guy jumps off a roof and breaks his legs.

Alright, so our guy is being threatened by someone online to do something online or else his homo fanfiction will be released to his parents.

And then your story just takes a dump there.

Here's other feedback to contrast.

>>16769

>The very first paragraph is describing 4 different planets that I don't give a crap about.

It's not four planets, but one planet and three cities.

>The recently colonized planet only hosted three cities that neighbored each other:

You gotta check your reading comprehension for at least the second sentence.

>guy just sounds like a robot as he jumps down a rooftop and breaks his legs.

He didn't break his legs.

>"Everyone knows blond andriods are…"

That's supposed to tell you that they do.

The characterization and plot gets built up over the next chapters. As for the information density of the text, I'm steering terse more often than others.

2nd story is a repost of:

>>16533

>Your MC does nothing except says "fuck you" to everyone around him

This one is inaccurate.

>at the end I still don't understand who the blackmailer is

This is typically the case on the internet.

>what I am suppose to feel

Treatment resistant schizophrenic here (trauma-induced, and not what Twitter calls "trauma"), with a 143 IQ (since for we've all lost our minds here & decided to start IQ-posting in a recent thread even though IQ is literally a nonsense metric) who is currently in a precarious housing situation w/ my family that has been abusive in the past, but my best friend is getting me up to his state to live with him and rebuild my life. I've been hospitalized 20+ times, countless meds, even got electroshock 16 times. I wrote a book of poetry about my mythologized history, and I got it accepted for publication. It comes out in July. I say all this to prove, maybe just to myself, that there is hope for me.

It is my goal to become a PhD. Clinical Psychologist (which I've had since before my illness, and every doctor & clinician I've had highly encouraged me to do so), and get postdoctoral training in Lacanian psychoanalysis. I am currently undergoing Lacanian psychoanalysis for an extremely reduced fee as part of a scholarship with a postdoctoral psychoanalytic school. (But right now I have never even completed a semester of university.) The analysis is, very slowly, transforming myself and my life.

Despite my capacities, I am unable to sleep or eat really. I take meds, minimally & as needed at the lowest dose, but I am finding it very difficult to literally just SLEEP or EAT because of my overactive mind. It's like I'm naturally high on methamphetamine.

Besides establishing a safe living situation in an apartment with my best friend, WHAT BOOKS can I read—fiction, non-fiction, or poetry—to guide me in my journey toward that second chance, the Gestalt??? Mainstream behavioral indoctrinating industrial complex, and family, has terribly failed me (and I sort of failed myself) — so /lit/ you truly are my only hope.

I remember reading in a youtube comment a big blogpost from a guy that finally managed to help his brother's schizophrenia. It turns out it was copper toxicity. The copper would literally get into the brain and short-circuit by "unwanted conductance". To chelate it he mega-dosed his brother on Zinc and I think Selenium, but I recall the Zinc being the chelating vitamin. Healthy fats in your diet should help re-sheath the neuron axons. It took a month or less for progress, a year to get him to a normal level, and IIRC 2 years for all the problems to disappear.

So you should take perhaps 3x the recommended dose of Zinc, Selenium, and avoid all copper in your diet. Meditate so you learn how to reduce brain activity; focus on the breath at the nostrils until the discipline finally works.

That's interesting. I've heard of cases where a person's schizophrenia was actually cured by going on the Ketogenic diet. Turns out the guy's brain was just hypersensitive to sugar.

It's interesting to see that another case of Schizophrenia was cured by realising that the brain was hypersensitive to something else. I wonder if there's more to this pattern or if these are simply two coincidences.

OP, I want you to know that you'll be in my prayers.

I believe, in some cases, mental illness is in fact due to diabolic oppression. The Lord allows you to suffer at the hands of demons because he wishes, through your suffering, to extract reparations either for sins committed by you or to you (e.g. child molestation/rape in the "to you" case) or for sins committed by or to a forefather of yours. Such demons are termed "Generational Spirits" and Exorcist Fr. Ripperger has an excellent series of videos talking about them on the Sensus Fidelium YouTube Channel.

I strongly suspect that in some cases, Schizophrenia is in fact a diabolic oppression.

You will be included in my Rosaries. I will be offering them for you to be cured and in reparation for the sins committed by and to the members of your family tree.

I want to thank you as well. I've been praying for my schizophrenic relative for some time now and what I realised is that I never explicitly requested for his mental health issues to be cured, only for it to improve. I would've never realised this had I not tried to talk to you. Your conversion will be in my prayers.

Pinecone Issue 00000:

NotPynchon & He Rapes His Sister Phoebe compiled as interviews.

>What is this?

Pinecone Magazine is the /lit/ magazine that publishes when there is actual content worth anyone's time.

>How can I submit?

There are two ways to submit. AtticusPinecone@gmail or you can use the submissions form on the website.

>What's accepted?

Solid gold unpublished poetry, prose, erotica, letters, literary analysis, anything intelligent or funny. You won't be reading any shit, don't worry. If only 2 things worth reading is submitted, 2 things will be in the issue.

>Is this the first literary journal from /lit/?

There was The April Reader & there is Ideology. But this is already head & shoulders above them.

>These things always fail.

Have a look first. For what it's worth, this first issue is good & it's nice looking. That might be b/c there is no poetry/prose & b/c I have actual magazine experience. 00000 is just NotPynchon & The Catch Her analysis, and both are very interesting.

Here it is:

I have some ideas:

>Listen to Alex Jones

>Consider what would happen if that world existed

>Portray Alex Jones as a kind of action hero leading a fight against the inter-dimensional aliens and demons and their degenerate human and goblin followers

>Alex's followers arm themselves with alien technology and enter into the hell dimension where the AI god created to control humanity dwells

>He finds a room full of humanoids and frees them

>Alex Jones breaks into the throne room where Hillary Clinton or an analogue thereof is about to complete a ritual that involves

>Alex Jones blows up the psychic machines

>Hillary Clinton freaks out and tells Alex that this was a necessary measure to prevent something worse from happening

>On Earth humans are 'waking up' and running scared as the state of reality is shown to them

>The secret society controlling the world, without their AI god to unify them is now in a bitter civil war

>Shields designed to hold back worse creatures are now weakening

>Alex Jones is then taken to a secret chamber of the fortress by one of the freed fish people- there is a table with a slab of meat

>Transpires neither side truly won the War in Heaven and this is a piece of God

>Alex Jones eats the meat and gains divine powers and the power to foresee and to look into the past

I just finished my story and published the ebook on KDP. How do I advertise it afterwards?

So far I've placed the first parts on RR and Scribblehub. I've also posted drawings on Twitter to show that it exists. I haven't got a single sale yet. I heard people say it's important to build the community and not push sales as the focus.

Most of the stories I read are completely free. I wouldn't know where you'd sell a book.

Hey /lit/

I'm an erotica author who write a lot of taboo stuff, and as I've been seeing success in the erotica market in the past few months I'd like to consider branching out. The stuff I've been putting out there is pretty fringe but within Amazon guidelines; I know that some authors who write stuff like, say, incest, will post their stories to Smashwords, which is more forgiving of extreme content. As of right now it's not really a problem because my stuff is pretty in line with the two big retailershowever, in the past I've written more than a few stories involving underage characters, and I'm sure there's a market for this content somewhere. Nobody mainstream will accept and publish such works however, and when I search for information about the issue Google shames me with a big warninglike, Googling the phrase 'underage characters in erotic fiction' comes up with a big fat whining warning about depictions of child abuse being illegal, yes, of course, obviously. But this is FICTION.

Naturally in the process of this Googling I came across United States v. Fletcher, a 2007 court case where the defendant entered a guilty plea in a ridiculous obscenity charge brought against her for maintaining a website of fictional stories, text only, no pictures. The contents of the stories sound like they were very shocking (more shocking than my stuff, small consolation to me) but obviously that's no excuse for the charges brought against her. She was an old lady at the time, too, which makes it very sad and absurd. It sounds like this prosecutor wanted to make an example and from what I can see it worked because everywhere I look in fiction communities everywhere if you even have the audacity to write about a character who's, I don't know, seventeen having a sexual experience that's depicted as erotic, you'll be banned on site and your work thrown off whatever website you put it on. Never mind that if you write the same scene at a 7th grade reading level and call it YA an agent will snap it up in a heartbeat. Never mind that de Sade's Justine was twelve at the start of the novel and so was Dolores Haze. Never mind THAT IT'S FICTION. FICTION FICTION FICTION. It makes me want to scream.

Is there ANYWHERE I can publish, sell, advertise,Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
