Here's the deal. I've already published two books alongside some university works. For the sake of my privacy, I won't name them and remove the usual tripcode that accompanies me when I post here. Been posting here close to eight years and if there's someone I trust to advise me on this, it's you guys. I pitched a new idea to my publisher who happens to be a friend and he loved it. I've been working on a series of books (five to be precise) that have a "fantasy / fiction" tone to them, something completely different from my two other books. I have all the stories in my head, some scribbled down on notebooks, others on little notepads, on tiny Word docs and such. All that's left is putting the pieces together. I've hit a terrible conundrum, though. I don't want this work to be compared to the likes of George RR Martin. If anything I'd like to go around a more high tier shit like Tolkien if we are to compare examples everyone and their mothers know about (to further simplify my point). In what sense do I mean this? Not as much in their nearly polar opposite way of putting a story together, but in two simpler things, for I already developed my own style of writing that I'm sure will evolve as I'm doing this. Should I or should I not use profanity and sex in my books? I don't want them to be vulgar and I don't subscribe to the post-modernist ideal that there's some inherent beauty in something ugly and common. Sex is a common thing and so is profanity, but I wonder if that will detract from the value of my work or not. Tolkien hasn't used profanity once and he managed to piece together something that's still emulated to this day. Martin on the other side gets high praise (who would've thought) because he creates more "human", relatable characters on the count of shoving in sex and curse words at every other page. But for me, there's nothing interesting about "the more she drank, the more she shat". So, should I put in these humanizing traits that are profanity and explicit sex or stay classy and never say the first while only implying the latter?

Okay I'm a bit new here and I don't really read much. I wanted to start reading to expand my knowledge a bit and I was told by you guys to start with the book "Finnegan's Wake" by James Joyce to: >gain a foundation for basic literature Literally what the fuck is this shit? I picked this up at my bookstore and I just started reading it earlier today. I'm like 10 pages in and I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on. What was the purpose of this fucking book? Can someone explain this nonsense to me?

Can someone explain to me how abortion isn't literally murder? I have vegan friends who are horrified when I squash on spiders in front of them, and yet for some reason the human embryo, with a working brain and beating heart, is not considered a complex enough life form to have a right to life? I don't get it man.

I wrote a play. It's about a film-obsessed misanthrope who uses movies to cope with the different dysfunctional areas of his life falling apart, but eventually he can no longer differentiate between what is real and what is fake. I'd really appreciate some opinions on this. It's a first draft and it's a little rocky, but I know there are things I missed and some objective thoughts would be great. I'm having a reading tomorrow to start on the second draft so anything you have to say should be very helpful. Read it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxdOPvt4UK3Jdk5YaUdtS1dIcDQ/view?usp=sharing Thanks in advance.

So I appreciate novels but I can't help but feel like they're a waste of time for me to read nowadays. The past three years I've bought nothing but nonfiction. Philosophy books, history books, books that I can learn things from or that straight forwardly express ideas and lessons rather than an author leading you to them through means of a story. Is this healthy? Am I looking at books the wrong way now? I feel like I am. Once I get over this binge of desiring raw knowledge will I learn to appreciate the beauty of stories and poems again?

Is New Atheism really that bad, or are you guys just putting it down to be contrary and edgy? Are there any New Atheist works worth reading?

Post yfw realizing that true happines reads in reading good genre fiction. Just the plot, the style, and the words, straightforward and honest without techniques praised by people studying a small set of books for a lifetime.
