Always been interested in those shitty little vidya novels and was thinking that one set in this universe could be pretty enjoyable. Anybody?

So /lit/. I'm a writer. I've read a few books on the subject in my time, and one particular tip that always inevitably crops up is: "Don't use adverbs." This is usually because they're seen as unnecessary. Now, I can't quite understand this one. Why exactly is such a large part of our vocabulary simply redundant and only used to mark out inept writers and speakers?

I was going to post this in >>4147285 but I thought I'd make a new thread so more people can see it. For anyone interested in teaching English in another country, I have a friend who did the very thing so I asked her what it takes and what it's like. The following is her reply, copy/pasted. Interesting stuff! [the country in question was italy btw] >Well, take a TEFL course, apply to schools, interview on Skype, and THEN move. Moving out there with no Bachelor's degree is no picnic if you haven't secured a job first, (trust me....I lived it). And as long as you are entertaining and kind of know what you are talking about, people will learn from you. Except teaching children, which just involves a ton of coloring, songs, and games. Be prepared to get turned down a lot, (I mean, 120 times out of a 100, and then have somebody who supposedly hated you call last minute), and teach at weird hours, (I did 5am-7am once, and had 5 students 10:30pm-midnight once a week) to fit around adult students's schedules. There is also NO WAY you will make enough from a school salary to live on (unless you are in an Asian country, or you go to someplace scarier like Dubai or Kazakhstan, where you should definitely speak the language and BLEND IN when not in the classroom. In the classroom, you will be worshiped). Maybe your salary will pay your rent, but you will have to get some private students to tutor for everything else, meaning..... You will have to be comfortable walking up to random people in the street, give them your flier, convince them they need English lessons, and then get THEIR name and email or phone number, all in under 30 seconds so they don't have time to walk away from you.

Originality is a deceitful slut. She whispers that you're the first, while wiping still-warm inspiration off her thighs. She moans with crocodile pleasure as you push into her boundaries. Newborn ideas crowd inside, their tomb a barren womb.

People here, that is. I doubt they've release sales figures yet. It's like this board goesn't give a fuck about Pinecone anymore. You know what's truly scary, though? This board has stopped caring about DFW and IJ as well, which is amazing.

Hello /lit/ I'm feeling very depressed by all my friends doing MA programs (global/international relations, math, feminist/cultural English studies, journalism, sociology of family. MBA, etc) Whereas I've wasted too much time sitting at home and just reading fiction with no job. Like I want to go to these programs, but don't have the rverences to do it, OR I kinda just don't want to be bothered - so In a way I'm both jealous and not. Can you cheer me up /lit/? (Just passed a little 9/10qt who i knew from undergrad who is now studying critical feminist english - and it depressed the hell out of me) (I'm a bitter marxist)

Ok, Murakami: I've read 1Q84 and The Wind-up bird. 1. Transit between two dimensions 2. Love story 3. An evil kind of figure that's hard to crack 4. A very passive mail protagonist 5. A sexually promiscuous and weird underage girl Is that all of Murakami. To be honest I didn't enjoy Murakami and only read the second to give him another chance. Reason being that my girlfriend likes Murakami and I thought if I read him we could share something but I can't find anything that I like about his books. Even in an attitude of reading for pleasure I can't enjoy it: Too much filler, very superficial "insight", plot driven by external events, many times those events are magical devices repetitive dialogues and monologues (as if he was unsure whether the read it got the message I think the biggest of my problems is that using magical devices to advance plot is a mayor way of cheating if there is no foundation. Marquez is masterful because even with the magic elements from folk he includes he doesn't use them to advance plot, Borges is masterful because since the "plots" are often due to an erudite interest in the magical event or object that object or event serves as an excuse to talk about philosophical and religious concepts. In the case of Murakami, however, I don't see any advantage in using them other than a writing cheat. I understand that I might be missing things so I'm open

>New York Times reporting that Tom Clancy is dead

I've read 2 McCarthy novels, still don't see the appeal.

Both 4/10s. Neither was terrible, but certainly weak. All The Pretty Horses, and The Crossing. I have Cities of the Plains, which I will probably read, but not quite yet. Okay. Here's the challenge. Explain to me why McCarthy is excellent, without reference to Blood Meridian. Explain in terms of his works generally...if you can.

Starting to Bukowski

Want to pick up a Bukowski collection because fuck it. Where to begin?

recommendations like Lovecraft?

Hey /lit/, recently i've had this craving for H.P.Lovecraft stories and I recently bought a book that I think had all of his published works. I quickly read through it and loved it. I just really love the way he writes and I was hoping that you guys can recommend me some stuff that is similar to his work? But preferably good because I think most 'horror' stories are bad and just slightly suspenseful and have a boring end. I like Lovecraft because I was so drawn into his world in his stories and I just want some immersion like that with some good books. So, any suggestions?

Why is it that the majority of libraries and bookstores, no matter how narrow and small their selection, separate their "Fiction" and "Science Fiction" into separate sections? Why must scifi be quarantined and treated as if it's somehow less than "Fiction." Separate but equal my asa.
