Not sure, OP. When I write a chapter in fanfiction, its usually about 2-3k words. I've seen plenty of people do as many as 8-9k words per chapter but they don't update as often.

Seeing people put author notes, timelines or all of three paragraphs for a chapter in fan fiction will usually cause me to drop the fic.
>>
>>14564599
Hm, alright
My current one is going to be 9k+ by the time it's done, but I'm trying to cut back on length since my other ones were usually a standard 5-7k, plus the whole story is in episode format but lately I've had to make 3 parts for a single ep wheras before it was 1ch=1ep

Hi, everyone!
I just wrote a poem freely.
Can I ask you what you think about it?
Please note, however, I can read it only using Google Translate.
The poem is a translation. It has been translated at my request.

Thanks for everyone reply.
I will study a little more.
I'll post again if I have the chance.
Once the poem is gone.
And since I read it in machine translation, half of the comments didn't make sense. I'm sorry.
Thank you.

It's the only sport I'm interested in besides rowing and tennis. I want to know more about it. Books detailing various fights and careers would be nice.

>>14564543
Look up books on Brazillian jiu jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, Karate, Boxing and some other grappling martial arts. Probably no good book that gets it all but whats best is probably to look into all the martial arts at play. Look for the most used arts to the least, for example Jiu jitsu is practically essential, then everything else from there.
>>
>>14564591
Those are good but I'm talking about the organization and stories involving fighters.
>>
>>14564543
The sport is unfortunately still kind of in a dark age as far as journalism and writing goes; there hasn't been a good reporter or writer who has focused their talents on MMA yet.
In the future I would be interested in writing something about the sport because I'm a pretty religious follower but I've also only hardcore following it for 7 or 8 years - there's so much history I'd have to go back and learn before I could give something like that an honest effort.
>>
>>14564647
You mean good books on the UFC and other MMA organizations? Well theres actually tons of videos on the rise of the UFC and the stories of the individual fighters on the UFC youtube page, the best MMA organization was PRIDE which has an amazing fucking history to it. Here's one video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6Vo_Xm-Wfg there is no book on the history of the UFC AFAIK

I've been thinking of reading the Rig Veda lately, but I recently read that the Upanishads represent the culmination of Vedic teaching and incorporate the entire tradition, dating all the way back to the earliest Vedas, so I'm now thinking of starting there. The only Hindu literature I've read so far is the Gita. What do you guys think?

Why is morality during war treated differently? "War crimes" are simply crimes. For example, a man can kill another man for a number of reasons and receive a life sentence, but you can sadistically torture and murder tens of people during a war and you'll receive 20 years max, and almost never close to that much if you were on the winning side. How does being involved in a war lessen the nature of crimes?

You could argue it doesn't morally

i liked emerson’s essays better than this book. doesn’t help that thoreau tends to exaggerate his reclusion from city and town life. nonetheless, it’s still a good read for an introduction into transcendentalism and i’m glad i read it. have you read it op? what did you think of it?

All his books are good although the travelogue with his brother on the Concord and Merrimack rivers is a bit long. The economy of Walden is amazing. Thoreau edited it, pared it down incessantly almost up until the day he died.

when did /lit/ start debasing itself? I remember having good chats on this board. Sure there were perpetual DFW and Atlas Shrugged containment threads, but I don't remember this board having so much total trash being lauded even 2 years ago.

Hell, maybe 6 months ago I came here and people were posting about Culture of Critique like it was a work of genius. We're maybe a year out from people unironically discussing the Turner diaries for hundreds of posts. How did we let ourselves slip?
>>
>>14564155
You're seriously behind the times, and you're just ignorant. Quite apart from media propaganda and timid and conformist academic denouncements, Kaczynski's work is unironically the most important stuff one can read now. Also, quite removed from empty claims of "unoriginality," the works are highly original and groundbreaking.

>>14559002
LOL. please do tell.

I've read some of the Turner Diaries, just the first couple of passages, and it is complete and utter bullshit.
