WELCOME TO /LIT/, HOME TO LONG-LOST TOME TOTIPOTENTS N DOGEARRED DONG-DUST DOMESDAY-DUMPSTERED MICK FOLEY VOTIVE VOYEVODIN

GENERAL BOARD RULES:

1. Global rules relating to illegal/board-jeopardizing content are enforced.
2. Slander/libel Dwayne "Wanton Waylaid Bercesure-Jobber Names" "The Rock" Johnson at ur own peril.
3. As much as possible keep discussion related to literature or its creation/critique. Philosophy threads should preferably pertain to a direct written source (this definition's flexible in anticipation of wat ppl like 2 use these boards 4), branching out accordingly. /lit/ boards regularly serve as catch-awls for "social science" discussion, which suffices in moderation but doesn't excuse eschewing conversation about the board's chosen topic + its baseline medium (writtan + reedan).
4. Poasts awn this board are occasionally harvested foar submissions ean2 the board magazine, THE /LIT/TYZEN'S FEUILLETON (collective issues interred herein: https://mega.nz/folder/vh5ilKLZ#6AuBFAfWUYlBdr_ob1j5KQ) - if you do not desire your poasts 2 evur find their waie ean2 the feuilleton, please note in the subject phield oar body "NF". Submit werks 2 [email protected] eef 1 soe desires.

This serves as a haberdasherized nu hoam ov duh /lit/erary loam for collective /lit/izens blasted to the four winds after the 'kunpocalypse. Preservation and perseverance provides the utmoast value in prestige-emptied pallet-towns lyk our parochial neck ov duh wouds, so pick your patois and commit to poastean-novelly pashtunwali - or simply enjoie the livean archives, thrivean n growean b4 ur eyes.

/lit/ will inevitably remain a slow board, so post appropriately & enjoy your stay.

B.O. OP EDIT: VIEW THE /LIT/PENDIUM HERE - https://mega.nz/folder/ThhnnayI#T30OHb3sHifcmVzLlnkYZg

Today begins a new chapter into the /lit/club. I made a fateful mistake by choosing the subject for the first nomination (Book Published 2 Years Ago) because of those bastards at the FBI. There are different resources vying for the vacancy filled by such a great site and I found one called

annas-archive.org which indexes a bunch of shadow sites.

Anyways without more stalling tactics. I present the list for this season and the nomination: World of Wonders
https://annas-archive.org/md5/fce03919d0c018a1334ff83aa0790a7e

Thank you everyone as usual and I look forward to your tastes.

ANIMAL PLANET is the next theme, books centered around animal characters and their environment.

300 words

Vape pen key board how do I write three thousand words let alone three hundred words on a 5 day basis on this day that I chose to do the three hundred day word a day basis if I do goo I will score good boy points on the Friday of the day that was this week and now I am only down to sixty seven words does that count the word itself or the total number I guess it's just the same thing does spelling count or is it okay I just make a bunch of typos also do small one letter words like a and I count as words since they are so minimal and other words bust their ass all day being words with more than one letter I'm sure that's a pain in the ass. That period right there means I stopped to grab my dick ha ha just kidding I have a hair in my face and now this concentration on spelling is making me anxious I feel it in my arms and in my legs its getting difficult to write now like I am using muscles that I hardly ever use in my shoulders or triceps like wtf I work out a fairly decent amount. That was another break by the way, but anyway I think it's the concentration that's making me uneasy about writing so much damn bro I got fucked up by jewish media bad I forgot how to natural write more than 200 words. Well looks like I'm closing in on the big 300. I'm feeling better a bit more now after a stretch but damn bro that's fucked up I used to do this more freely but shit I guess life gets you like that when you aren't looking well here we are 300 wowwee I am still going. Sorta filling in for all those pussy ass short letter words so fuck you a and I punk ass bitches lmao

whatever you do, flee the flow state, it is a trick of the devil meant to pollute your pen. if you can't "write" a long sentence with multiple clauses in your head, you can't write, and you should just read. there's nothing wrong with being a reader. people who advise stream of consciousness noodling are luciferians.

I've been overthinking this recently; why read translated fiction and poetry? What is the value in reading something that isn't in the author's own language/voice? Can poetry even truly be translated? If not, wouldn't that carry over into fiction as a whole, since sound, flow, word choice, wordplay, and cultural/linguistic implications are so important to the experience and meaning of a story? Am I just having some sort of midwit short circuit here?

Octavia E. Butler is overrated. I literally had a soyboy trying to sucker punch me for saying it back at college and the entire class got mad at me, including our teacher.

"Literature"? What are you, gay? We'll have none of that nonsense in this thread. Come and talk about stories about cool things for men.
>nuuuuh, but my poetry
I will literally beat you up.

What are your favourite books? Who are your favourite writers? What are you reading now? What do you plan on reading, but have not yet gotten around to?

What was up with his fixation on foreheads? A Tale of Two Cities alone has like a hundred references to the foreheads various people; male and female, young and old, rich and poor. Was it a fetish?

A person's forehead shows his character, status, age, and health.

I have a big forehead because I'm a MED. Even Lovecraft being an angloid believed that Greeks/Romans having large foreheads were a divine sign of superior intelligence and good ethics.
