You finish that book you've been working on yet, /lit/?
>>22079378Haha fucking nope.
>>22079378What typewriter is shown in that picure?
>>22079389I burnt all my paper drafts of my writing.Why would anyone want to read that shit?
A few more chapters and I'm done. I started in September and it is probably going to be around 150,000 words.I had about 3 or 4 self-esteem breakdowns in the process and I'll be so glad when I can just stop worrying about it for a few weeks.Every now and again I go and find that YouTube clip of David Lynch saying "I am so depressed, I don't know what I'm doing" and for some reason that helps.
>>22079542Underwood something-or-other. Looks fairly new in typewriter terms.
>>22079378I am about 10% of the way there. Also coming to terms with failure and that it's okay to try.
>>22079378>You finish that book you've been working on yet, /lit/?Not really, but I bought a typewriter and have been fucking a cat.
Why would anyone buy a typewriter in 2023
>>22079378It will be finished whenever I have enough poems to constitute a collection.
>>22080378w-what was that last part?
>>22079378Is writing encouraged on this board?
>>22080577No this isnt /tg/ you cocksmoker
>>22080410I bought a typewriter and did some other stuff. I thought you were asking about if I were writing? I'm not. Except for dream journalling for psychonautical work, a new never-for-publication comic book, the normal epistolary, and the historiography obviously. I fuck cats.
>>22079378It will split into two books. One of them will remain the first person narrative and focus in on theology instead of it being a theme, the other involves freelance detectives/vigilantes.
>>22079648What the absolute fuck! Why are you such retarded?
It's only an article and I'm definitely not done. I'm having writing anxiety
>>22079378Fanfics first, books later.
>>22081071what is wrong with that?they are worthless.
>>22081480>they are worthless.You don't get to decide that. It'd have been infinitely better if you'd have shown the board anons.
>>22081719Shut up, you first class faggot
>>22081719they were mostly juvenalia or 2 or 3 page drafts that I made up on the spot with no planning. I can write you a fresh one if you want. I only even remember a few and what they were about.
>>22081748>I can write you a fresh one if you want.My dear anon, I beseech thee, please, if you could prepare a fresh draft anew, it'd definitely mean a lot to me. I'm in great anticipation of seeing your creative merit.
>>22081724What seems to be the cause of your brazen rudeness and intense anger, anon?
>>22081771Can you stop being a pseudointellectual. I am trying to have a normal conversation with you.
>>22081777why you using my poster name anon? please, it is mine>>22081771you serious bro or is this a massive troll? I may write something short
>>22081811Can you stop impersonating me. Not cool >>22081771I would, maybe later. Just not in the mood but Id still burn it after writing it
>>22079378How do I cope with reading economics 8h and trying to read after that at home?
>>22080753don't force a theme into your writing. authorial intent doesn't mean shit
>>22081820I am Van OP, stop using my tag lest I strike you down.Spooky that I actually started an authorial intent thread recently, and intent is very important.>>22079514
>>22079378https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BTWCGDWJSure. You want to read it?
>>22081814You are such a fag
>>22081839wow it's shit
Hey guys! Do you have writer's block? Just usehttps://www.sudowrite.comIt's a blast!
>>22081811>why you using my poster name anon? please, it is mineseriously bro what is with you?>>22081873oh okay you are a fag troll
>>22081873shut up>>22081879dude what the fuck, if you want to waste your time impersonating me go ahead, fucking loser
>>22081886>shut upActually replying to your own post now? Pathetic.>dude what the fuck, if you want to waste your time impersonating me go ahead, fucking loserWell that other anon now won't know to reply to me if he wants some fiction drafts from Van OP (which is me) so thanks very much.
>>22081839This is genuinely dreadful >>22081856*whiny dyel bitch voice*>you are such a fag
>>22081893Welp, time to get a new posting name I suppose. I hate to see my favorite one taken over by a guy so rude as to shit all over a published anon. I am sure he worked hard on it.>>22081839You should be proud of your published work anon :)
>>22081891Jesus christ, you are such a redditor.
>>22081903Maybe you should go back to plebbit if you need a posting name, you retarded faggot
>>22081914It's just not very good. I think the key point when I read it is you really try to push authorial intent, which is a dead meme in literary theory basically what I'm saying is, you don't know literary theory
>>22081921I see. You found my other thread and decided to shit up another thread by posting about intent constantly. You have a sad life son.
>>22081953nobody cares about you or your name. go back 2 reddit or kys
>>22081820>character talks about God constantly, citing different verses>HURR DURR IT'S A FORCED THEME
>>22081921That's fine. You don't have to like it anon. I just wrote it, edited the best I could, and put it out there hoping someone likes it.
>>22081963He doesn't like or dislike. He hasn't read it. He is a troll shitting up my other thread. once he saw I had posted under this name and said authorial intent was real, he has adopted the post name and is going around saying intent isn't real. He just wants to troll and say retarded shit.
>>22081963He doesn't like it. He has read it. He is a genuine poster in my other thread. once he saw I had posted under this name and said authorial intent was real, he has engaged in genuine criticism in that he is saying intent isn't real. He just wants to have an earnest conversation and facilitate discourse
