(A) PoMo Lit is "about the endless deferral of truth, reason, and clarity as a means to finding truth, reason, and clarity."
(B) "(When speaking about psychological development) adolescence is inherently a time of disturbance and psychological confusion."
(=) Therefore, we can conclude that PoMo Lit could be easily defined as "Adolescent Literature".

Hey /lit/, it's Sunhawk again.
I'm going travelling for a few months in South East Asia. I have a nook, but the screen is pretty fragile.
What's the best cover/container for a nook that's going to be in a backpack and probably bashed around a bit? All I can find is flimsy leather cases, but I'm not sure if they're durable enough. Ideally I'd like something metal, but there doesn't seem to be any manufactures making them.
My warmest regards,

I think Shakespeare's body should be exhumed.
Let's be honest: he was by far the greatest of all poets (his metaphoric and imagistical inventiveness is extraordinary even among the other geniuses of poetry, like Dante, Homer, Milton and Pessoa, for example), and probably the greatest of all writers too (he covered various topics and created thousands of characters) . The paradox is that we know almost nothing about the greatest genius of the language that mankind has ever seen.
The hunger for information is so great that experts spend years sifting through musty old parchments from the Elizabethan era in search of any scraps of information (these scrolls are legal and civil records, which are usually cold and impersonal).
Well, why not open once and for all the tomb of the great genius and found what it shelters? We could know the height of Shakespeare, his facial features, we might even know with which clothes he was buried and what was the cause of his death.
I think we should do a campaign to exhume Shakespeare. (And please, don’t come with conspiracy theories, because anyone that have study how English countryside schools were effective for the development of language skills, and anyone who read about the enormous amount of references in Shakespeare’s works of aspects of the country and rural life will soon realize that the man of Stratford was, indeed, the author of the plays).
Exhume Shakespeare, go!

I get up early to do workout, and the rest of my day is shot.
Which gives me little to no time, motivation, or energy to write.
Any advice to make sure something gets down on paper by the end of the day? I keep putting it off and going on /b/ or watching porn, you know.
Writerfags, report in

Hey /lit/, are there any aspiring authors on here who have trouble actually sitting down to write? I'm not talking about writer's block, I mean you wake up, say to yourself, "I think I'll do some writing today!" And then when you finally boot up Word/open up your notebook you stare down at the blank screen or paper and for whatever reason you think to yourself, "You know what, I'm just not feeling it today."
So far this has been me for the past month and it kinda sucks.
book editing services - need info

Anybody know anything about these people? I've got a writer in the family who's looking to get published, but he wants to get all the info he can before he pays for editing services.
I've already looked at his manuscript. He doesn't want my help with it any more. He wants professionals. Problem is that anybody can just up and make a website that says you're professional at something, and the only difference between a pro and an amateur is that the pro gets paid for it, but I digress.
Anybody know anything about these guys? (And yes, I know the irony of trying to get a serious response on 4chan, but the company name is so fucking generic all the searches we've done come up empty and they don't have a zip code or address to do a BBB search on)
If these guys are BBB accredited like they claim to be, I want an address and zip code for them so that we can see it for ourselves.
