creative writing general

5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: tumblr_m1ca4wn2qW1qcflzio3_5002.jpg]
Got a few questions about creative writing. I just thought it would be a good idea to create some kind of general guide, so the board doesn't get spammed with writing threads, especially since it is NaNoWriMo currently. So the first question: What do you guys think, when you read a line said by a character like this: 'Hm... I don't think this is a good idea.' or 'Huh? I thought you weren't going!' I just feel like this is really damn shitty and instead of using words like 'hm' or 'huh' I should explain the feelings / emotions of the character. So in the first one it would be, that the character is thinking hard, maybe even describe his face while he thinks and in the second one it would be suprise. What do you think about it? Second question: What do you guys think about open or unexplained endings? Recently I really have become a big fan of psychological horror and most of the time my story ideas don't really give you a conclusion. I am not going into the 'Oh well better kill myself since this was so horrible' and explain nothing. Instead I want to leave my character in a state of confusion at the end of things as well as the reader. There are multiple things that could have happened, but it is not shown or revealed what really happened. I have thought about putting little hints, that a reader who reads sorrowly might find out, but I am not sure about this. Thoughts? Also I am not a native English speaker and won't attempt to write in English, so don't mind grammar or anything please.

Well hello there, /lit/. I was wondering if you could recommend some criticisms of humanism to me. I don't know why, but I've always though of humanism as an indefatigable good; recently I've come to realize that I don't really have a basis for that belief and wanted to get the opposing view. So shoot.

Hey, I'm going on vacation soon and want to spend a lot of my time reading. I want to read some classic/modern classic books, but nothing too boring or hard to read. Is The Picture of Dorian Gray an easy enough read? What else would you recommend?

I'm working on a piece of writing currently and have a general but not entirely developed idea of what I'd like to pursue. I know that ultimately, I would like for my setting to be eradicated by a force of nature (hurricane) and suggestively, by an act of god. In such I'm looking to create a biblical allusion to the tune of Sodom & Gomorrah - a town so crippled with vice and decay that the environment itself conspires and executes its destruction for the betterment of the world. Anyways, my question is - has this trope been used heavily before? I don't even want to try writing something that is in actuality, a cliche. None of that end of the world apocalypse, new adam and eve shite.

Attempting a huge sci-fi adventure trilogy What should I stay away from? Any ideas on the science I should incude? Emphasis is on human v human conflict and human v nature, so well-rounded and believable characters is a must. Also how do you guys feel about dubstep in space? I kinda want to add it as a cringe/troll factor so the reader has something to hate, I think thats essential

The Brothers Karamazov

I got sick of my buddy sucking this book's dick, so when I saw a copy for 50 cents, I bought it. I got home and checked it online and found that my copy (same one in pic), is the Constance Garnett translation that is not very widely regarded. Should I just shut the fuck up and read the book, or seek out a different translation? My buddy told me to read it for the themes, then pick up a different translation and read that for the prose. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to read the book twice. I don't have much free time to read in the fist place, so reading it once will be a challenge.

Did learning to like reading stupid fantasy/young adult literature have much influence in your interest in literature? People like to defend dumb genre fiction with the defense that its a gateway to serious reading, but after a certain point I think that's bullshit. Obviously you need to read in your formative years to know how books 'move' but the reasons I liked Harry Potter when I was 9 and the reasons I like Celine now, at 24, are so utterly different I can't imagine they're much connected . . . I didn't read one single novel between the start of middle school until about 3 years ago and I have better taste + skill for literary theory than most people my age IRL. What about you guys? Was Harry Potter or whatever important in becoming a reader for you?

Can someone explain to me how it is that +50 year old ebooks still cost so much money? Considering the author is long dead and the marginal cost of publishing an ebook is basically nothing.

This collection by Louise Glück is the first book I've ever pre-ordered (which I did months in advance) and gotten on the day of release. Anyone else a fan of her work? The New Yorker ran a decent article about her in last week's issue. Unfortunately, it's not available in its entirety to non-subscribers. Here's the link anyway: http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/books/2012/11/12/121112crbo_books_chiasson

any background I should read before venturing into Homer? Could /lit/ suggest a decent myth compilation or just myths told by greeks? (ex: Sophocle's Oedipus Rex)

I came across a poem in an older book--some compilation of war poetry. I very dearly loved it, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name now. I can remember a few lines, but the only part that I know is accurate is this: "Speak no more of ceremony, And speak no more of fame, My heart must seek a burning land to bury its foolish pain." I know it's one hell of a long shot, but does anyone recognize this?

My eyes are too tired to read but I won't be able to fall asleep 10 seconds after I close them. The waking minutes (can minutes be used here?) when I'm not reading this are too torturous. I will buy eye drops tomorrow. Anyone else felt like this?
