I've never really understood this quote by Musashi, "Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world" Can any of you explain it to me? What does it mean to think lightly of yourself? What does it mean to think deeply of the world? And why must we do these? This isn't homework, I promise. I've just been very very perplexed by what he meant by this for a long time.

Have you ever ordered from The Book Depository? How long until an item goes from "Dispatched" to delivered? What delivery service do they use?

http://orgyofthewill.net/ Have you read this yet? It's the start of the first book solely on philosophy by Alex Kierkegaard (a.k.a. Icycalm, two different pseudonyms the guy uses). He owns and runs the website http://culture.vg/ which focuses on video games and cleaning up misunderstandings in the gamer communities. He's already put out two books on that subject, with two others just on the horizon. For a brief personal overview, look at this older article of his: http://insomnia.ac/commentary/moving_to_france/ His work is relevant. What he's written for video games is like nothing else out there; the clarity of his thought completely penetrates and expunges all the bullshit confusion that other people have created. He is constantly disregarded for having an "immature" writing style, but as someone who plays and loves video games almost as much as he does I can say with absolute confidence that he knows his shit, even with his choice of tone and style.

Hey /lit/ What do you think of Ernesto Sabato? I've never seen him mencioned, but I think he is one of the greatest writers of the last century. Have you read any of his novels? Or perhaps do you think his essays are more interesting?

So look I just got finished writing this story. Took me about 30 minutes to come up with and put into words for rough summary. Am I worthy of joining lit?

I'm stuck, /lit/. I'm writing a personal narrative, and I'm stuck. In the narrative, the narrator is on morphine. How the FUCK do I write a story with the narrator on morphine? All attempts leave me with something that almost exactly mimics generic bad writing. The experience of being high on morphine makes real life badly-written. Do I just have to pick another subject? Is it not possible?

King Arthur

9 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: mord[1].jpg]
Hey /lit/, I was wondering if there were any sites/videos/threads/anything that you knew of discussing the multiple different versions of King Arthur and how the characters, stories, and writing style were different. Specifically the Idylls of the King, Le Morte d'Arthur, and The Once and Future King. There has to had been some sort of article on this on some university website or something to that nature.

Ulysses? by James Joyce?" >she argues with him about it for almost half the class >finally she takes it out of her bag >"this book? you read this book in second grade?" >he flips through it >"oh no, I read a biography on Ulysses S. Grant" pic sort of related, kind of looks like him. he was my hero.

Creative Writing

Does /lit/ want to write a paper? It's an assignment on characterization; the character has five treasures, a ticket stub, cassette, shell, and a baby photo. I have to integrate these into the story as something that holds sentimental value for the character and explain how they were found.

/lit/, do you think God is actually dead? Was Nietzsche right? Actually, I didn't really understand what "the death of the God" shoul mean for us.

I am looking for a recommendation for a book that can assist me with creative writing. I mostly wish to focus on writing poetry & song lyrics. I would like to perhaps venture into short story territory also, though those would be written purely for my own enjoyment. I would like a book on this as I struggle somewhat in finding inspiration, getting started and indeed just finding the right words to articulate what I wish to convey. Some years ago I attended a free 1 day course on creative writing and found that the person leading the course managed to somehow tap into whatever reservoir of words I have and allow them to flow out of me, with what appeared to be a few simple writing exercises. Pic related. How I feel my writing sounds at the moment. inb4 post something of yours. I am not at my own computer at this moment in time.

"He once asked his friend Jonathan Franzen if his only purpose on Earth is 'to put my penis in as many vaginas as possible.' " Shit. What a misogynist prick.

The Hipsters

hey /lit/, anon just recently acquired what he believes to be a first edition copy of "The Hipsters" by Ted Joans. Pic related, it's the cover. The inside says nothing but the typical copyright/publishing information with the year "1961" Also, the pages have no numbers. So, is it worth anything?
