It may not be worth your time. When I was a kid I found the original in a first printing at a book store in LA. Read every page, then started thinking about it. Read up on it later, found that most of it is complete and utter nonsense to the point that many people think its actually dis-information to basically stop people from actually doing anything. You are better off reading the guerilla warfare pamphlets the military produces and the eco-terrorist handbooks the original earth first guys produced in the 90's. Same theme as the anarchists cookbook but with an actual focus on fucking industrial corporate shit up.

Practicing my technical writing. How is it and what can be improved?

>The age of petroleum as an energy source is slowly coming to an end, but the modern world remains powered by oil while being ubiquitous in products that do not yet have viable petroleum substitutes for their production. As the developing world’s demand for fossil fuels grows and supplies run dry, oil exploration becomes a more lucrative but risky venture that also promises higher oil returns.

>The project manager and procurement officer have the authority to negotiate for resources. The project manager and relationship manager are authorized to communicate with contractors and the project manager has exclusive authority with regards to communication to upper level management. The project manager has the authority to designate roles and jobs within the project. The holder of this position is John Doe and the other positions are vacant until assigned.


Subject matter and details are arbitrary by the way.

> but the modern world remains powered by oil while being ubiquitous in products that do not yet have viable petroleum substitutes for their production.

ouch, rephrase this. use of ubiquitous seems forced, whole passage is a bit clunky and could be better rephrased. also, switch "powered" to something that indicates that you're talking about its uses beyond just energy (like "remains reliant on")

Your second sample passage seems just fine.

Hipster Slut 16/03/08(Tue)21:24 No. 17544

The first paragraph is not technical writing. Technical writing conveys information or instructions with an emphasis on clarity. What you have written appears to be rhetoric instead.

"The age of" - undefined, unbounded term
"is" - this implies a current state of affairs, but does not indicate any particular date. Is this sentence still true when read in 2070?
"slowly coming to an end" - speculation or prediction, not information. 'Slowly' is vague.

"the modern world remains powered by oil" -redundant with the first clause, which already states that we are in an 'age of petroleum as an energy source'. Also, no data to support this assertion. Technical writing conveys information, not common knowledge.

The rest of the first paragraph isn't any better.


The second paragraph is better, because it tries to convey information: job responsibilities for various positions. This might be more clear as a bullet list.

project manager
o negotiates resources (see also procurement officer)

Anybody got a copy of "The Magic Fart" by Piers Anthony, acclaimed author of the xanth light novels? I just finished pornucopia and need more jousing cock demons on ice cream mountain. For those who have not read the series that was not a joke. There's on the 7ch server so I'm hoping somebody here has the sequel.

"

"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 guess I should tell you which books I'm looking for, if, by some minuscule fucking chance, you have some of them.
Nikolai Gogol by Vladimir Nabokov
Gogol's Artistry by Andrei Bely
La poetica di Gogol by Jurij Mann (I don't even know if this is translated. Italian is fine.)

I'm quite amazed by the phenomenon of russian futurism especially by Mayakovsky and Tsevateva. What saphisticated gentelmen think about it?

Much like me, you make your way forward,
Walking with downturned eyes.
Well, I too kept mine lowered.
Passer-by, stop here, please.

Read, when you've picked your nosegay
Of henbane and poppy flowers,
That I was once called Marina,
And discover how old I was.

Don't think that there's any grave here,
Or that I'll come and throw you out ...
I myself was too much given

I used to read books in sets of three all through high school, usually finding some way to interconnect them thematically. I found it deepened my experience of reading the stories to see their similarities within completely different settings and points of view.

op: drop the second and third books from your selection and replace them with "Cities of the Red Night" and "The Western Lands".

Naked Lunch is worth finishing if you enjoy it.

Doors of Perception gives you an idea of drugs, but not half as good as if you take hallucinogens yourself.

The Lighthouse is abortable.

I would like to publish my writings on line, similar to how Stephen King publishes some of his work. Read a part of the book, buy the rest of it if you like it. Does anyone know where I can go to get information on how to go about doing that?
Thanks in advance.

The first post on this page:

http://forums.indiegamer.com/showthread.php?17891-How-to-Sell-Your-Game-Boot-Camp

has a pdf that covers some of the basics for setting up a website and payment options. It is aimed at independent video game makers, but a lot of the same information applies to your goal.

On the other hand, I can't recommend your approach. Stephen King can get away with the ransom model because he already has a large group of fans. If you are an unknown, or a new writer, then this will not work for you.

A better choice would be to leverage existing publishing avenues in order to promote your name or find a particular audience. After you have several books published, then jump to the independent publishing model.

There's simply too much competition for the limited number of readers out there if you start from nothing. It takes roughly 1000 core fans who sing your praises to all of their friends in order to generate the sort of awareness that you'll need. Otherwise you spend as much time on marketing as you do on writing, and end up earning peanuts for the effort.

In any case, I wish you good luck on your endeavors.

I haven't read it,but consider heading over to Deviant Art and commissioning a better cover. Your current cover is okay, but you want something that will actually grab readers.

Take my word for it. I've been trying to sell my book for the past year. If you're not writing erotic fiction for a niche audience self-publishing probably won't get you many sales.
