Serious question /lit/, how do you think reading fiction will make you more educated? Philosophy I can understand, but pure fiction? Regardless of what you think I do appreciate language and I believe that it can be used aesthetically, but I also believe that the content is more important than the "look" so to speak. Metaphorically, a pretty car is always nice, but I care more about the mechanics.
Since I have nothing else to post as a picture I decided to post this wallpaper I made some time ago. I do think that you will like it.

I've read deeply in Adorno's work. He is a rigorous thinker and his critique of the enlightenment is very strong.
I see the obvious holes in his arguments, especially concerning popular culture and the culture industry, which are lost on most. But I don't care to critique Adorno...because I'm an orthodox fascist who finds nothing problematic with the holocaust, whatsoever. Thursday nights I play trombone in a swing jazz group. Oh, and did I mention that I'm a poet?
Come at me, Adornians.

"Now he would never write the things that he had saved to write until he knew enough to write them well. Well, he would not have to fail at trying to write them either. Maybe you could never write them, and that was why you put them off and delayed the starting. Well, he could never know, now."

Normally I see inspiration posted on other boards to help people get fit, fashionable, better at drawing or whatever. Yet despite having a large amount of budding writers here I never see any threads for inspiration and motivation.
So /lit/ and writing related motivation thread...
