http://iwl.me/ Alright, /lit/. Feed this website some writing of yours. I want to see what shitty author it thinks you write like.

Speed reading

I want to learn to read faster, /lit/. Pic related is my progress so far. Goal is to join the 1% who read at 1.000 wpm. Also speed reading general. >Requesting good links for exercises or practice >Requesting good software for same SMALL TEST: >http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/marketing/technology-research-centers/ereaders/speed-reader/ SOME TIPS: >http://fourhourworkweek.com/2009/07/30/speed-reading-and-accelerated-learning/ >http://www.irisreading.com/speed-reading/speed-reading-tips-5-ways-to-minimize-subvocalization/ Now what I really wanna know is, should we even be speed reading? The guy in the last link says that minimizing subvocalization is really equivalent to not reading for language, but for ideas. Should we really be reading, say, Cervantes in this way? Shouldn't we be looking for and enjoying language in all good novels, certainly in verse drama and poems?

What does it mean, chaos gathered into a sudden bronze sweetness, an October flourish, and then that moment denied, turned acid, disassembling, questioned, rephrased?

Yet another book request thread

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Growing up, I've read nothing at all and had next to no education in English by virtue of having an American public school education. Now that I've finished my university degrees, I've started regretting and lamenting over my severe lack of culture and knowledge of literature which I have made it my goal to fix at all cost. To further this end, I've made the following list of books that I hear referred to all the time to read but I can't help but feel like it's missing a far deal of important books. In /lit/'s opinion, what else would you recommend not just as great works but as essential reading for everyone in educated society? >Books I have read so far: To Kill a Mockingbird I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Hamlet >Book I have yet to read: The Catcher in the Rye The Grapes of Wrath 1984 Catch-22 Animal Farm The Great Gatsby Of Mice and Men The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Lord of the Flies Slaughterhouse-Five A Tale of Two Cities Moby-Dick Crime and Punishment Fahrenheit 451 War and Peace

Literary tattoos

77 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
So my friend and I made a promise back in our first year of uni that when we graduated we would both get a tattoo. Well, that time is coming up, and while she's been pretty adamant about getting something based around the Odyssey, I've kinda been lost. So, a few weeks ago, I was rereading some Whitman, Melville and Hawthorne and came upon this: "(O something pernicious and dread! Something far away from a puny and pious life! Something unproved! something in a trance! Something escaped from the anchorage and driving free.)" The words have been on my mind ever since, and I think I've resolved to get it. What does /lit think? Any of you have tattoos or have a specific phrase or image you'd like to get screwed up by an illiterate needle jockey? Pic related: I'd like to get it on my shoulder blade.

Alcohol as a writing aid

99 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Why did so many good authors drink excessively? Does alcohol increase creativity, allowing for literary inhibitions to be temporarily stifled and free thought to flow? What's your favorite hard liquor, and does it help you write, study, read, or do something literature related? I don't know if Stalin drank, nor do I consider him to be a good writer, but I liked the pic.

I want to become a writer. I'm sick of being a designer, it's shit. I don't want to have to wake up in the morning and come into work then deal with retarded customers 5 days a week. It's getting old. I have a decent way with words for my age, being aged 21. I also type around 140 words per minute, although that is probably useless. I understand my initial works will not be a great success and that their main purpose should be to help me establish a writing method. What should one start to write about? What kind of things did good writers write about when they were starting off?

Well, /lit/, I got pic related for my birthday, and I've almost finished it. Holy fucking shit. This book is fucking incredible. I've never read anything in my life that immerses you so far in the deep end but still manages to keep you afloat. There's adjectives in this thing that I've never even seen before, but Herbert is such a great writer that they somehow still impart meaning. Dune appreciation thread.

At least some of you must have read this thanks to the Colbert bump. Thoughts?

I find that there are two types of people when it comes to relationships, romantic or otherwise. For one, there are the collectors. These are the sort of people who will take a wife -- for example -- just because that's the done thing, because it symbolizes power. These then truly are your main body of people, as depressing as that may seem. And also, the most stable. Then you have the artists. These soulful solipsists never gave in to the rat race, but stayed truly spiritual always, residing not just in the temporal, but eternity. These then are your "unstable", "unpredictable", etc. Verily, these can be dangerous men (or women), and it's amongst these people you'll find your serial killers, rapists, etc. But at the same time, you'll find the most beautiful, sad souls. These people are the misery of the immortal soul. Evan sat in class amongst his peers. He was a good worker, got good grades, was involved in extracirricular activities -- he was an all-around star pupil. Little did his teachers know though, dark things stirred in the back of Evan's mind. A handsome boy looking on at girls and thinking of love, he found much more than that. Then one day he asked his teacher if he could stay back after class, he had to ask her something. "Sure," she had said -- a pretty lady, a student teacher. The next day she was found dead in the bathroom, multiple stab wounds along the length of her body. When we're born into this world, we're born with an incredible wickedness. This is the absolute depth of our loneliness in this infinity. Forever after, for most, this loneliness is alleviated, bit by bit, until death. But for some -- the artists -- this loneliness never leaves; always there remains its scar, its mark; forever after the soul must live with what it was, even if it comes to find some family, because there are just some things you can't forgive yourself, there are just some things that can never be made sense of. And, as such, these people paint their souls for others, by others; for acceptance; or as martyrs; or in some truly sad and insightful cases (the abused child-turned-abuser, for example), to assert their immortality; and so on.

Why does this boring 30 year old lesbian continue to namefag on this board? Did her failed relationships with men make her want to hang out on /lit/ and discipline 17 year old boys for shitposting?

'The sun also rises' sucks. it has no plot, its characters are paper thin, but worst of all, it's got the white hot pretentiousness of ten thousand fedorae. If you have the nerve to recommend this waste of pulp, then you are everything that's wrong with the world, yes even including ebola.

Do we have enough letters in the English alphabet? We seem to come up with new words every day, and I imagine we're getting awfully close to reaching the maximum number of reasonably long letter combinations.

What do you think about this? We discussed the theory behind it at school and also Fukuyama's End of History. And no, I won't go to /pol/.
