“Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.”
Oh no, reading?? Who wants to read on a fighting-game forum? Gross! But yeah, this thread will be used to discuss all things literature. Talk about your favorite stories, poems, lyrics, hell even post and discuss some of your own work if you feel comfortable enough! I’d love to see what some of you have written. I guess comics and manga could be considered relevent hence they *are *[SIZE=3]graphics novels, but if they do come into the discussion at least try to keep it mostly involved with manga (hence I know there’s already a comic thread, haven’t seen a manga thread). Even so, still try to keep it involved around literature. You know, books. Edgar Allen Poe, Dante Alighieri, [/SIZE]Harlan Ellison, or some more modern authors.
Remember, please don’t flame people for their opinions nor’ especially for their stories! Writers know just how awful it feels to have their work smashed by a bunch of assholes. o_O
Writing has been a part of me for so long now that I consider my passion for it on par with my passion for FGs, which is no small feat. I actually took the dive and got a novel published last year which can be foundhere. Usually I’m writing about assorted FG canons but every so often I’ll jump into the world of original fiction.
Right now I’m about halfway through a Batman mystery because hey, it was once said that every writer has a good Batman story in him.
Nigga, there’s a difference between a fan fiction and an original work of literary art. Fan fiction would imply that it uses elements from an already existing/popular thing. This, is not what this thread is for.
Either way, there’s a section for writings. If you want to discuss novels, this thread is fine. If you want to discuss your own writings, then I’m going to close this and send you to the Street Writer section. God I hate that retarded name. Sano probably came up with it.
When I’m not writing anything, I enjoy reading either graphic novels or autobiographies. The last one I read was “The Last Outlaw” by Stan Hansen. It was cool to hear stories about what pro wrestling was like before WWF went national, but man I think Stan Hansen took way too many shots to the head. His story-telling was all over the place and he would ramble for page after page before getting to the topic he wanted to address.
