Hello. This is my first time posting on /lit/.
Basically, I have never read a single "proper book" in my life. That is, no novel, novella or short story like Of Mice And Men, The Great Gatsby Lord Of The Rings, or any of these.
When I was younger (9 to 12, approximately), my mother quickly noticed that I didn't like such books, but then she bought me some encyclopaedias and these caught my interest very quickly. I've read them in Polish, Norwegian and English. It was a relatively long phase. The illustrations and descriptions of the world were really interesting to read. I could not get enough of it.
The phase faded eventually and now I am occasionally browsing Wikipedia for relevant articles. Then my brother showed me the first roleplaying core rulebook I ever saw, Cthulhu Tech. The concept of having both a story to tell and a game was truly fascinating to me. I picked off from there and gradually dwelled into Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Rogue Trader.
Now, the reason why I haven't read a single "proper book" in my life... Naturally, I don't mean to provoke anything negative in this thread and I definitely have nothing against literature in any way, shape or form.

Hey, writers of /lit/. Go ahead and post the beginnings of something you're working on. Or any extract, really.

Anything at all - prose, poetry, drama.
And, for the next hour or so, I personally guarantee a response for every piece posted (the thoughtfulness of my critique will, naturally, be commensurate with the ambition and scale of the text). I know a lot of work gets ignore in these threads, for no good reason, but I'll sincerely consider every original word you share!

Good morning, /lit/!
I have a question regarding reading apps for smart phones, if anyone can help me with this. This could be a thread for e-reading in general as well.
Recently I was saddled with an Iphone, and I'd like to try to make the best of it by getting an app for reading books on it. I've downloaded a lot of pdf files from the board and Calibre for editing files but I'm not sure which app would be best suited to use. Right now I'm looking at Comic Glass, which seems kind of nice because I could also use it for reading comics or manga. But if there's anything else that could be better or something that any of you use and like I'd love to hear it. I'm not really concerned about if it's free or costs money either, as long as it's good enough to have.
Twelfth Night essay!

I don't mean to be a drag or anything, I just really need help!
I'm writing an essay, and would really appreciate if someone could give me an example of irresponsible behaviour of one of the characters in the play! I used the example of Sir Toby, always drinking/never making money kinda stuff. I also used Maria, not being a responsible in stopping Sir Toby and friends, when they where making a ton of noise one night. Thanks in advance!!!
*Btw I read the book, just had a bit of trouble understanding some scenes, maybe I missed something.
