Unfonctioning /lit/erary alcoholic

37 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Benvenuto.jpg]
Hey /lit/, I would say my life is pretty poetic but it sucks when I'm sober; I feel as I can't think properly and, needless to say, I can't have normal social interactions with other people. I'm not saying I have normal interactions when drunk, but at least I have some and they are definately not shit-tier. It's like I have all my intellectual wit sleeping in a bottle. I know I'm not alcoholic because I don't drink that often and can stop for weeks without thinking about it; those weeks will just be dull. Still, without a few drinks I can't help but want to be left alone. I ask here because I'm sure all fans of Proper Literature went through or are somehow going through this kind of thing. So how do you do to be a functioning human even when sober? Pic unrelated, although I somehow feel like him when I drink.

Hello /lit/, what modern writers do you think will be classics 100 or 200 years from now? It's probably not what we expect...

This brooding asshole is Tom Riddle from the Harry Potter series, in his twenties. Basically, he's a race/caste motivated gangster and an unsurpassable snob. However, he was an orphan, had a shabby upbringing, got airs and ideas in school, and operated on the margins of society for decades after graduation. I know art is about form over content, but indulge me. I'm interested in any characters that resemble this one at this period in his life.

Have to write something for my creative writing class. Mine has to take place in a movie theater a feature a mischievous main character. This is my opening paragraph (gonna write about two 15-year-olds sneaking into an R-rated movie). Is it shit? Me and Lauren gave our tickets to a woman with snappish hands. “Theater two, on the left,” she said, hassled. Already she had seized the next batch of tickets from the growing line of bustling families (each with one screaming kid at least, I swear to God); droves of twenty-something college students with phones and scarves and bombastic conversations; single men; groups of friends and even a herd of old folks, quiet and drowsy and oblivious. It was a Friday night and there were two new releases and ten minutes left to grab your seats. We didn’t buy our tickets to one of those movies, though—we had s different plan. This is the first attempt I've made at writing a short story since middle school (In college now).

Won't bombarding somebody with a stream of simple questions just make them think you're an idiot and ignore you?

Why is that the most notable writers always suffered from some kind of mental illness? Is there a correlation between mental disorders and creative abilities? Or going even more far, is it possible to have beyond the normal abilities if you're just a neurotypical? Discuss.

10 short stories is nice for a 300 page collection.

Isn't it? Rather than 40 or 50 really short pieces. 10 stories, a mix of short stories and novellas. Oh God. What am I talking about? But it is a nice way to compose a collection, I think?

Hey guys, are you in possession of compositions of poetry or prose which you wrote in the days of your youth, and any pieces which you just cringe at how bad they are? I have one for an English assignment back when I was 14. >The once azure blue sky has been overcome with an acrid and offensive grey, and the burgundy red flowers which once trembled with brilliance and lucidity, are embittered by the vile scenery above. They stoop with a drained listlessness, and their once pure and sumptuous hue is infected by a debilitating violet which bled into harsh streaks of black, and they exude the pungent and contemptible smells of chemical and decay. There's a lot more, but I can't be bothered to type it.

Why do many people use the word 'literally' incorrectly?

So I've realised the topics of me and my friends (we're all 21/22) conversation recently are profoundly abstract and existentialist. Basically most conversations end with the same stoner stuff like 'maaaan, we are just sacks of meat!!' I'm a literature graduate but I never really got round to reading much of the existentialists (Sartre etc), but I think we'd all appreciate and even benefit by reading some of the great existentialist literature. What would people recommend as a starting point? Ofc I could probably wikipedia this but particularly with a topic like this it's nice to know that other people are in the same boat, ya dig?

Works of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

Hello. I am looking for the works of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. I have searched but I cannot find it anywhere. Wikipedia says - he wrote more than 400 works, most of which are little known to the general reader. So there must be e-book versions somewhere available. I'd like to read some of his more famous work, i.e ''The Will of the Universe. The Unknown Intelligence'' Any philosophical work of him is welcome but actual scientific articles are also welcome. Thank you for your help.

I'm looking for books that take place in northern states from US, in small towns, happening during the winter. Love stories, mystery, doesn't matter. Something like that part in American Gods when Shadow is sent to that perfect town, I thoroughly enjoyed those chapters.

Hey /lit/. I am going to write a novel, tell me what u think of my idea. A scientist discovers how to bring prehistoric animals back to life. They are talking about doing it in the news now and it sounds like a good story could use this. They build a park for them on private land in Alaska, then people go to the park. However it is not made right and the animals get out into the wilderness. Then a giant war the USA has gets them trapped up there and they have to hunt and survive against the prehistorical animals. Like cave men vs cave beasts. What do you think?

Why are you still reading? Books are ultra played out
5 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1360336387105.gif]
What is it lately with the tendency for novelists to write their stories like there's some sort of massive conclusion building up towards the end, only for it to resolve in 10 pages without addressing any of the content from the middle of the story? This has happened with at least six books I've read in the past year. >Interesting start >Building tension >Middle of the book lags a bit >Last 3/4ths reaches fever pitch in tempo >Sudden, mundane ending usually with lazy plot holes And these have been "bestsellers". What about you, anon? Are there any books out there you've read recently where the ending makes you go "HOLY FUCK!", and you felt thoroughly satisfied afterward?

Overcoming writer's block

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: download.jpg]
I've lived in the US during one year and took a Creativing Writing Workshop class in the university I was attending there. The problem is: Although I can communicate well enough for daily things, my english for writing literature was crappy. So, in order to get more used to it, I started reading a lot of books written in English. While I certainly had improved, after one year doing this I'm back to my country and I want to write in the language I'm good at (or at least better). Problem is: every time I try to write, I just think in english. So it seems like I'm blocked and cannot think on my own language when I want to write. Has anyone here ever experienced a similar situation? Any tips?

Hey /lit/! Where should I start up with reading Ludwig Wittgenstein? Also if you can give me a little bit of an insight into his philosophy it would be most welcome!
