He took the blade, held it up perpendicular to the ground and let gravity do most of the work of bringing it down since he’s too weak of a fuck to do it himself, slicing off a nice cut of flanken for tonight from his on-the-fritz cow of little to no value to his milk production. “MMAAOOOOOAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMOOOOOOOOOAAA” “Ah shaddup you filthy ruminant”.

"

"OK, now there are six people with us. I swear to hell this is an episode of Friends where people just walk in on each other without warning and blurt stuff out involuntarily. Where are the cameras? And who the hell are you and where the hell did you come from?" "Hi. My name is Maninahat, and this is boring." "My place of residence seems to gravitate people of low stimulation. Maninahat.. Man in a hat. Sick parents. At least it's a name.. Nameless doesn't have one. Hi Maninahat. It has been a displeasure to see your presence in a place as personal as my own residence, and furthermore to see that I have had an audience from the side, summarizing our lives with an adjective that can only describe their own life as though their commentary is objective and should be treated as such. Maninahat. My first impression of you is that you are a loud-mouth who feels that their opinion matters and should be heard... Are you the boyfriend of narrator? The two of you are scarily alike in a way that would not surprise me to find out that the relation is of blood."

A look that can be discerned as the gaze of a super-model flushes over the countenance of what was once the face of boredom of Maninahat. WIth head tilted to the side backwardly, and mouth ajar, the stance is clear that the thought and personal attention of Andrea has engaged the interest of Sir Boredom after all.

"You're absolutely right. Narrator is my boyfriend. How did you know?"

"Interesting situation: In this very room we have a stir of personalities. We have two homosexuals, a fat ditz, a hippie, a clueless airhead, and a mindless follower. Am I the only sane one here? The relation could be guessed by a child, Maninahat. The way you pose yourself standing could be guessed from even a mile away that your sexual interests are bent. Please, describe your communication and association with your boyfriend to us. We can't seem to get through to him."

"I can't get through to him either. I feel so helpless sometimes. I just want to cry over my inability to touch his heart in the way he has touched mine. Depression hurts."

"Awww. Sit down with me. It's okay. Being gay is bad enough as it is. You just have to accept that your life is terrible, that you are abnormal, and that your only prospect for love is with someone as vacant as your boyfriend. Despite being nature's miscarriage, only good can come from here, since you have--is that an erection bulging its way through your trousers? Oh, Maninahat. I didn't know. You thrive on humiliation. I bet you also love sadomasochism. Tim, you're off the hook. This boy needs the cangue more than ever."

Maninahat, without hesitation, follows the direction of Andrea's guidance to the doorway which she will use to firmly wedge the cangue over his head to the door frame high above the ground.

"You're lost. I will take care of you."

I posted this on 4chan earlier and didn't really receive much constructive criticism. I'm looking to improve vastly on my essay writing. This is not meant to be original. It was made specifically for criticism. (just starting and blowing it out my ass for now)
Thoughts?

Why are some people so infatuated with Lovecraft? He is probably the most overrated horror writer ever.

He is basically emulating Hindu mythology and name drops 40 000 different gods while building some pseudo-imaginative netherworld where everything boils down to madness and hurr nothing makes sense durr. Pretty much every neckbeards wet dream besides watching anime.

Pretty much

His work is incredibly dry and empty

In his work he's always grasping for substance but never finds anything except for his own bleak madness

writing is something that i'd like to improve upon. here is a first draft at the prologue to a story. it will be vaguely based off my life, and my transition from male to female over the next few years. strange subject matter but i think if i can capture it in some sort of semi-fictional and surreal way then it'd be nice.
interested in any comments. it's just a draft. The names and age have been changed to preserve anonymity. thx. please let me know if its good or utter shit. the italics and bold dont work? not sure how to do it :P

life is just a fractal
Dude, what the fuck? Facebook just erased my memory. Swear with my right hand to a fucking church. I was just…

That’s the new modus of operation for you, Honey. Who is listening?
I went back home and ate and played with an iPod but it wasn’t entertaining so I enjoyed a cocktail of entactogens, and an absolutely Edenous garden view. Appreciated it from the dry end of the glass.
More wine. Lightning. Abruptly so, anyway, because I…

I don't mind the use of italics, they are the literary shorthand equivalent to black and white flashbacks in tv shows.

However, this comes off as pretentious and irritatingly opaque. If a mystery is a mystery because the narrator arbitrarily leaves information out that they can just as easily provide, then it isn't really a mystery at all. It's a case of waiting for the narrator to get on with it and paint a picture, as opposed to just hinting one is there.

It's pretty bad, I didn't read the whole thing, it looks like you opened a dictionary to random pages and dropped in words you saw. It's extremely disproportionate to the style of writing, I picked out a few things that bugged me.

>go steal another car. stop being sad. like cancer.

What is the point of this? Especially that last line "like cancer"

>The shakes were real and the nectar of my nightly forage was draped, slung under my eyes like wet bathroom towels and tropical…
in-distinctive murmur

What does this mean, "Nectar","Forage", and "Draped" are used so improperly here that whatever ambiguous enigmatic thing you're going for is not clear enough. A euphemism for masturbating maybe? Why did you wipe it under your eyes after masturbating? Is it a man or a woman?

>modus of operation

Don't fuck up Latin phrases, modus isn't a real word in English, leave this as modus operandi

Still working as of now. There are some great rare books in here.

One question though. Why does every secret book collection with books I find interesting about survivalist, homesteading, obscure history, etc. have to have one file filled with really dumb racist hate rants, nazi fanboy bullshit, and "the jews are gonna get ya!" books. Its like nothing can be solely for one purpose everything has to have some kookville militant shit or just be useless eco-living pussy literature for bored housewives and hippies with no imagination or natural intuition.

Got a response back from a publisher on some work I submitted. The response was:

"We looked at your submission and at this time, it appears not at this time ready.
Suggestion - seek critiques on the repetition and password sentences.
Regards,"

My question is, what is a password sentence? Also, isn't it ironic that they used repetition a sentence before criticizing repetition?


>>
Hipster Slut 15/12/13(Sun)04:16 No. 17505

Ow.

I believe what they are saying is that you are writing sentences which sound like they were procedurally generated, as with a random password generator. While they may be parsable, they are inartistic. Clunky. Unrhythmic. Painful to read.

The general advise is to study some poetry. Without seeing an example of your work I can't suggest more.

Hipster Slut 15/12/22(Tue)20:19 No. 17513

I was thinking the same as you OP. For an editor their response was poorly written. Very poorly written.
Unless they were being a sarcastic asshole and were trying to illustrate whats wrong with your prose.

If I needed a short list of best books chosen by the internet comunity by language wich would they be. For now specially interested in English spanish and french. But maybe it could extend, open for discussion.

I must have misunderstood your request. In any case, if you have no other criteria beyond 'best' books, the western canon is a reasonable place to start.

I hope that you undrstand that using this language to comunicate with you is quite hard actually, a bit primitive. I am sure ther has to be a list of a few books above the average in every language. (tu vais, petit chinge, je suis capable d'utiliser les adjectifs)
