Cradle and cultivating chaos for martial arts fantasy.

For comedy, blue mage raised by dragons, the sorta dark mage, I would recommend everybody loves large chests but it's slightly game litty.

For depression with a sunrise at the end, trysmoon saga.

For wondering if the author posts on 4chan, try contractor.

Fimbulwinter is okay if you ignore the blatant smut throughout the book.

Here's one.

All Systems Red - Martha Wells
https://publishing.tor.com/allsystemsred-marthawells/9780765397522/
It was always published by TOR from the beginning. That's not self-published in the slightest.
Martha Wells has a long record of being not self-published and has never self-published.

That being said, the other self-published chart has even more that aren't self-published. It's failure from both people.

Who the fuck cares autist? It is free books to read. Seek help.

Are screenwriting books actually helpful for storytelling or are they just paywalled memes pushed by Hollywood and film schools?

i don't feel i need a textbook to tell me what makes a good story. wrote my screenplay without consulting anything and then cleaned it up afterwards by reading articles on formalities etc. it's probably shit but i doubt some big book would help

Fun fact: The Last Psychiatrist called that book a "textbook of psychoanalysis", I think in his Amy Schumer post.

trips of truth!

What kind of person likes Yukio Mishima? And why is he so liked on this board? Why do you like him? Is it because he's beta and you're beta?

I am drawn to this man, not because I admire him but because he's a train wreck and a warning sign of what NOT to be. I don't want to end up like him. I don't want to be this pathetic beta trying to be alpha. I relate to him too much and I don't want to be like him, I cringe at this man's story. I feel bad for this man and feel bad for myself for relating.

Me. Mishima looked like a self-loathing bottom who secretly loved being submissive (and that's very hot).

OP, look at the picture you posted, and then look at yourself in the mirror. Capish?

Objectively speaking, his image is not one who comes from insecurity, or "Betaness", he was a confident young man with the spirit of a vital Nippon empire. What does one take away from this? He had a fighting spirit, he did physical acts of rebellion and not just in writing, he took action and when it all went to shit because everyone else was too scared and pathetic (the real Betas) he took his own life in a ritual suicide. Respect this man, you are nothing OP, not worthy of breathing.

Speaking as a non-Japanese: I understand absolutely nothing about what he stood for, why he valued it, why he did what he did, etc. Viewed through a Western lens, however, he seemed like quite the f****t.

Have you guys heard of Kantbot? Do you guys think Evola and Guenon are based? Heh, I'd say so myself. We're definitely living in the kali yuga with all these prog midwits. Have you guys heard of Quentin? Based as fuck. The Unabomber is based, so is Nick Fuentes and Sam Hyde. I'm a trad anti-urbanite based cabin bro. Progs are cucks. HE WILL COMPLETE THE SYSTEM OF GERMAN IDEALISM!! lol (meme)

Huh? What books do I like? Oh, uh... I don't really read, I mostly just browse the internet.

D&G's Anti-Oedipus, especially Volume 1, Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Secondary literature may be required if you have no prior experience with Lacan and Marx, from whom they frequently draw ideas (I wouldn't consider them Marxists or Lacanians though.)

Foucault's Madness and Civilization/History of Madness -- two different translations, the latter being the most recently -- are extremely accessible and requires no secondary, overall a great book.

Newest purchase. Trying to get back into poetry. Thoughts?
