Is around 5000 words a good number for a Master-level final subject report, considering said report if what you are graded on?

I am just worried about what I submitted/am about to submit.

Where were you when you realised that there are seemingly countless intricacies all around you, even (or especially) in the mundane? Did you feel the awe of observation, the latent power in your observational capacities, did you feel like a child holding the world in your hands? What emotion did the knowledge that with nothing but a keen eye you can schism reality into two, both equally true and real? Did strange tears cross your cheek as mine did, do you feel newborn with infinite possibilities, with the realisation that with the shaft of an eye you have the power to construct and deconstruct life itself?

But, do you also feel that with such an insight you were removed from any perceivable reality even more just for understanding it inside your head?
Also that your see-through vision is tempered with emotion that alters them on subconscious impulse? It matters not that you understand the why and how. Do you too feel cursed now at the ultimate realisation that it is all for nought, that your almost messiah-like abilities, though giving you great wisdom, is attempting to rip your soul from a body not resigned to death?

What does one name this feeling?

Existential crisis. Usually happens when you're about 40 or so. Sometimes sooner.

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.

Oh damn now you've got a criticism there.

Yeah the purple prose ain't up to snuff nowadays. Shit didn't stick to the ages.

But really his works are more about the universe being indifferent to human life. Like there's shit humans weren't meant to understand because our minds can't process it. When you read his shit you gotta look at the content behind the fluff.

It's cool if you don't like his shit though. You're allowed to not like things.

Honestly, it's a combination of 1) it was the style of the time and 2) he copied a lot of his style from Poe.

Lovecraft is really bland. That's the bottom line.

“One sec I’m whetting my blade”. “Well, you’re the hurrier so time is of the essence”. “Thanks, Tiffany”. 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."

Hello.

I need my fix of good literature because only recently have I stopped flooding my head with that fraud that is called philosopy.

Since I'm spanish and I'm counting with the fact that many of you are not pretty much anny suggestion might serve.

I'm looking for a good lighthearted adventure like Stevenson's or a raw, crude, careless one (should I say "morals free) like Blood Meridian or other Mcharthy novels.

I do not have a problem at all with touching any subject.

Inmersive novels are very welcome too, since I'm also leaving my videogame and procrastination life and thus i need good material to start exercising my imagination.

I trust you good taste!

My personal preference in that line would be Robert E. Howard; not only did he give the world 'Conan the Republican' (sorry...couldn't resist) but he is a deft hand at humor as well, as shown by the hilarious 'Breckenridge Elkins' tales.

Also, if OP is looking for PERFECT grammar and for a chance to increase his English-language vocabulary...and if he doesn't mind doing without sleep...there is always the vastly creepy works of the inimitable H. P. Lovecraft.

Try Woman In The Dunes by Kobo Abe. On one hand it's a quite whimsical and absurd, although dark and claustrophobic adventure. On the other hand it's a thoughtful, primal and beautiful depiction of the mundane, the primal and the ridiculous of human experience. It can be light, poetic and enteraining in a darkish way, or cryptic and analytic, or something in the between depending how you take it.

James Purdy is a good place to start.

Look at his books and you should find one.
