HELLO THERE. It's your friendly neighborhood Writer, just here to leave a pile of rules to establish a level of standards for those who want to enjoy the board.

  • Division of shit from lit: No flimsy, short, barebones posts that are undeveloped and thoughtless. If you're going to write something, write something. Posting an outline of a story or some ideas and looking for critiques or advice is totally acceptable, though.
  • No smut: I had to think about this for some time. Tasteless fap material is not welcome in /lit/. This isn't your personal jerk-off board. Don't write stories that are sex-centric. Sex is a natural human act so it can enhance a story, but sex itself is never by any means a story. Although, if you must, post it in /ot/. If enough people post their smut there, hell, you might get your own smut board.
  • Content: What is/isn't allowed? The works posted do not have to be related directly to Yume Nikki, although a majority tends to me. I believe as far as writing/literature goes, most anything can find its way here. Talking about books and literature is encouraged, as well!
  • Labeling of NSFW material: Some people don't have strong stomachs or don't like sexual content to your writing. If a post or chapter of a story contains some, please label it as such.
  • Level of maturity: Sure, some writers may not have the technical finesse or prowess of people who have been writing for a while. Still, as long as the fledgling writer is trying their best, don't insult others and instead offer advice. Otherwise, posts will be deleted and you may be banned. Repeated offenses will incur increasing penalties.

That's basically it. Read, write, have fun. :D

Dear Friends,
i've been working on this art project called The Edges of The Cube for a few years now and finally it is about to take off. I'm excited!
actually this is the first place in the Wired where i post about it other than the fb Yume Nikki group.
if you love Yume Nikki, i'm sure, you will be attracted to my little thing as well.
first 2 chapters and a video you can find on my website,


The video narrator sounds like a giant faggot. Am I supposed to listen to this for 8 minutes? Because I can't.


I haven't finished reading the text but the voice in the video you use makes it hard to listen to, which is a shame because I like the ideas expressed in it. I did listen to the whole thing but you did not use a voice good for conveying information. It seemed like you deliberately used a breathy voice that you weren't comfortable in, when you should be speaking strongly and distinctly. I'll get to the writing portion when/if I have time to finish it (I read slowly).


i appreciate the feedback. You are right, that isn't my natural voice. If i'd do my regular tone it wouldn't go with the character, though. He has this ghosty vibe, that i want to preserve as much as possible.


>fb group
whatever this is, i bet its trash


The link is out, is there anything new?

Pic not related

> If this needs to be moved to another board, please do so. It seemed appropriate to put this in /lit/ rather than /ot/

I was hoping there were some people out there that know of any good writer support groups. I'm currently working on a book, but the problem is that the genre is kind of hard to pinpoint, though it leans toward supernatural overall. So are there any groups that you'd recommend to me?


Find a competent forum RPG, make a character, participate, and talk to the other players. That's how I learned to write.


If you're fine with a writing group where the writers are from tumblr (this one is a lot less crazy than the ones that allow minors and there are even people there who won't get angry at you for every small "mistake") then ask and I can give you the discord link


i know this is late as hell but are you still giving the discord link

Reading non-fiction books such as manuals, biopics, essays and the like is quite a delight. Does anyone here find them interesting as well?
Share resources and non-fiction you find interesting in this thread.

I wanted to upload some manuals, but apparently Uboachan's literature board doesn't allow pdf uploads, now what kinda literature board doesn't allow uploading books?


Good point. I'll update the configuration later today.


Awesome, i didn't expect such forthcoming.

Nekojiru Udon (known in english as Cat Soup) was a manga originally published in Garo magazine. Some of it got translated (http://mangafox.la/manga/nekojiru_udon/) but there was much more that never was to my knowledge. There's a blog that was translating it (https://translatingnekojiru.tumblr.com/) but from what I remember it was a clusterfuck of random pages from different volumes, and now you apparently can't view it without a tumblr account. Does anyone own scans of or physical copies that they could scan of the untranslated volumes?

It was also made into 2 anime. A half hour long film, whch I know some of you have seen already (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlLBX4EIlJY) and a series of short cheap episodes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWnkOvi4i6c).

If you want to know more about the author:

Nekojiru is some good surrealist/realist work
If you're interested, the official site is still up
The entire thing is a relic kept alive by its fans, who still post on the textboard.
Pretty much everything on the links page is dead, but recorded in the wayback machine.


I love Cat Soup

ITT we write a story one sentence at a time. When you add a sentence, make sure you wait for at least one other contribution before adding another.

it was urotsuki?

A fair amount of people have asked what are books that are reminiscent of Yume Nikki. This made me wonder if there are books of similar vein to .flow - or, to be broader, it's like a Yume Nikki-esque book but gritter, creepier, or more horror-oriented. Would be interested in reading what y'all mention.


I am fond of reading poems. Reading and writing own stories and poems helps me to improve English skills. Few weeks ago I wrote my poem and published it on one site for writers. Two days later I found that it was published on anotjer site under another author's name. Plagiarism also well- known problem in wrtitng essays. I prefer to write essays by my own and now i am fighting with writing reflective essay like here https://essaypro.com/blog/reflective-essay/


you mean to post this somewhere else?

People often talk about how the Yume Nikki manga was horrible but no one seems to talk about the light novel. Is it any good?

Is the art good? That's the main reason I'm buying it


Sounds like a book that didn't go through editors, or…anything that ameliorated it from the draft stages…

hope you're doing well, if it's really you. obviously it isn't. whenever I feel depressed I'll watch some old archives of your streams.

Hello! I'm looking for something relatively easy (or intermediate) to help improve my vocabulary, since English is not my first language. Any genre is alright.


Tom Sawyer.


Tolkien and J.K Rowling literature is pretty simple
Try reading teen-oriented thrillers/detective dramas too, that should do the trick.


The Hobbit definitely, but not the Lord of the Rings or the Silmarillion. Have you even read them?


I remember the first time I read LOTR in english. I learned a lot of new words that I haven't seen that often since.
Definitely not easy.

OP, what's your mother language?


"To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee or anything by George Orwell (like 1984 or Animal Farm) both of those are taught like middle and early high school years so theyre good for strengthening english vocab.
