Why haven't you written your book/novel, /lit/? What possible excuse do you give yourself to not write?

For me, personally, is I don't know how to start my novel. I've done outlining and made notes on my novel but I don't know how to start it let alone write it. There are times where I cannot go more than a week of writing before I erase it and start all over again. Hoping that the next attempt is more successful than the last, yet always finding myself in the same position no matter what I do. At this point, I don't know if it's just my self-perceived or actual mediocrity as a writer, but it left me depressed.

Lack of motivation.
Not for myself, I have plenty, but my characters lack any kind of goals and desires to speak of, so there's nothing moving the plot forward.
Is there shame in writing a Young Adult Novel? More so, an Urban fantasy novel? I don't think their should be shame in writing those if you're using them as stepping stones in your writing career?

Post your short story ideas. It's not like they're going anywhere.

A small band of drug runners comprising a nuclear family are attempting a run in the depths of Corrugon space. Unfortunately, they're discovered by an automated drone and their ship is shot down onto a barely-colonized Corrugon outpost planet. Reeling and trying to repair their ship, they're attacked by the local Corrugon forces and their daughter is kidnapped, prompting the father to set out on a rescue mission. From here we get to see three very hot storylines.

With the father gone, the son takes his opportunity to become the man of the house in more ways than one *wink wink*. The mother is in fact a consciousness spread out over three bodies. This allows her to achieve constant vigilance and when all three of her brains are working in conjunction the speed of her thoughts far outpace those of a normal human. However, her intelligence is based on exponential reinforcement of all three brains working in tandem, and isolating one brain from the other two causes a sharp drop in intelligence to sub-60 IQ levels. The son, through deliberate manipulation of the connections between the brains, begins a process of stepfordization, turning his mother from a hardy space adventurer into a submissive fuck-bunny eager to please (and keep the house-ship clean). Of course there will be scenes where the son has two bodies pleasuring him simultaneously, and comparisons of the pros and cons of each of one. It'll be very hot.

The second storyline involves the breaking of the daughter at the hands of the Corrugon forces. They are gelatinous beings with consciousness spread out across the entirety of their body. Thus they can separate pieces of themselves into their own, autonomous consciousnesses, albeit at a much simplified level. They use this ability to infiltrate her body, which they do via tentacle-fucking, of course. So as they're tentacle-fucking all of the daughter's holes including her nostrils, they are traversing her mucous membranes and bypassing the blood-brain barrier, allowing them direct access to her brain. Though the autonomous consciousness cannot survive long separated from the main Corrugon body, over a period of experimentation they are able to control the daughter's reward center such that their probings induce an intense sexual bliss in her. As the Corrugons tinker with her mind and interrogate her for information she is reduced to a drooling mess idly playing with herself and eagerly spreading her holes during each and every session of tentacle-probing. It'll be very hot.

The third storyline details the journey of the father to rescue his daughter. He makes contact with a Corrugon who is sympathetic to the cause of the humans and in fact has a human fetish. So the friendly Corrugon agrees to help the father so long as he teaches them the ways of human sexuality. The father sets out to teach the friendly Corrugon how to imitate human physiology. Though initially quite simplistic and caricatured, through hands-on teaching sessions and encyclopedic entries on the nature of human anatomy taken from his pocket electronic encyclopedia (a basic device with universally useful information) the Corrugon creates passable and eventually nearly-convincing of humans, not just on the outside but interiorly as well. Of course there will be scenes of the father feeling the texture of every aspect of the friendly Corrugon's body and probing her holes (it will adopt the body of a woman) to ensure that they are convincing. They will devolve into intense sexual sessions, as the Corrugon's inherent composition allow it to deliver intense pleasure not available to humans, such as an extendable tongue wrapping around the father's member, and other deviations in anatomy, such as skullfucking the back of the Corrugon's head. It'll be very hot.

As they approach the enemy's stronghold, the Corrugon reveals that the best way to enter it would be to "camouflage" the father by allowing the Corrugon to meld with him completely, a never-before-attempted fusion of Corrugon and human only possible due to the Corrugon's extensive research into the shape of humans aided by the father. The father allows the Corrugon to enter him, the two becoming one body. The father-Corrugon manages to enter the stronghold and rescue their daughter, but find her in a nearly-broken mental state. They carry their unconscious daughter into the wilderness. As she awakens and sees both the loving face of her father and sensing his Corrugon nature, the confused, mind-broken daughter can only respond with arousal and a fumbling attempt to undo her father's pants. Half-unwillingly, the father makes sweet, restorative love to his daughter, embracing her gently, kissing her with a father's warmth, as he ejaculates into her, commencing the perfect union of father, daughter and Corrugon. It'll be very hot.

I don't really know how to wrap things up after that though.

If you want a more extended answer: Mein Kampf is an often boring, often repetitious piece of poorly written agitprop which holds little value beyond its historical significance. The most interesting parts were his accounts of NatSoc ideology, but these can be found better explained in the papers of someone like Alfred Rosenberg, and his accounts of propaganda and oration which are actually quite insightful. However, this comprises a bare fraction of the book, with the rest being a plodding self-aggrandizement of himself and the party, and agitation against marxists to stir up his base. There is no reason that it should be 600+ pages.

That's not in the plan, but his mother's spirit resides in the tree and she gives him a livingwood arm made from one of her roots,, so arguably for the rest of his life, whenever he uses that arm to jerk off...
Boooring. At least make it so that a part of her spirit resides in the arm to provide sage advice like masturbation and fingering tips at appropriate moments.
Can you just jerk off before you post? Filthy degenerate.

"Let's compare dick size (no homo)."

I slap him hard across the face and drag him by his hair into an alley, bending him over a garbage bag. He squirms and starts cursing me out in French as I yank his trousers down past the curve of his unappealing pasty white ass. I order him to count how many fingers I have shoved inside him. Initially he resists but i start to kick him behind the knee, aiming for his joints

he coughs out. I spit on my fingers to lubricate them and reward him for his obedience. We copulate violently in the alleyway. Afterward, we smoke cigarettes and argue about our favorite poets.

So, having read neither Peterson, Zizek, nor Marx, I have finally decided that I will start paying attention to some of the most influential thinkers of our age, as well as to those of the past that still hold a great influence.

First, however, I need to make a list. There will be some classics, of course, but I think most of them are not needed. I have read Plato, and, except perhaps for some of the Republic, his ideas are rarelly debated anymore outside of academia. Aristotle's Ethics is a little more popular, but it's also not mentioned very either, unless people wish to start talking about virtues, and so on, which is rare.

Here are some of the books in my list:


Hume - An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding
Rousseau - Social Contract
Adam Smith - The Wealth of Nations
Burke - Reflections on the Revolution in France
Kant - Political writings
Hegel - Philosophy of History
Marx - Capital

your whole recent list is memes. Hume's Enquiry has nothing to do with politics, his Essays are what you're looking for. read Locke instead of Smith. Mises is very difficult, you might want to reconsider. nobody reads Popper anymore.

add pic related, it's the actual red pill and the last book you'll ever really need.
Also fair no Spielrein or Freud means dumdum

Build a circular room then mount books on the wall all in a row. Sit in a computer chair so you are at eye level with the books then spin in a circle while reading from each book.

how come zizek has an "out there" opinion about everything, but when comes to the nazi "issue", he has a super politically correct opinion? is he controlled op? he always mentions his stance on the issue, always worded the same way, and just because, like he always HAS to mention it, weird.
