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

The birds have vanished in the sky,
and now the last cloud drains away.
We sit together, the mountain and I
until only the mountain remains.

There is some really good stuff in this thread. Shamelessly necrobumping, hopefully some more people will post. Here's one of mine from this year.

Shallow Voice
- - - - - - - - - - - -

Do you remember back before your heart
Was covered with with beautiful snow?
Something warm and priceless died with her.

And marching softly onward since that time,
You’ve been spending your whole life to find
The music fit to complement
The shallow voice down below.
The brightest parts of you went chasing after her.

Necro bump with pride. Im glad there is a poetry thread, I write them often.

I just finished reading Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre a week or so ago, and I read "The Double" by Fyodor Dostoevsky out of a collection of some of his works that I bought; it seems that the next work of his in the collection is "White Nights," so I'll be reading that soon.

Additionally, I started reading A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn earlier today, as I'm rather ignorant of history in general and wish to learn more about it. I'm only one chapter in and I'm already fascinated.

What about you, Uboachan? What are you reading/have read recently? Recommendations are welcome.

Carl Jung's The Red Book Liber Novus.
A famous psychoanalyst has a mid-life crisis with terrible nightmares and day-time visions. He chooses to go into the nightmares and takes the fight to the demons on their own turf. Lot of philosophy and mindgames.

Anon is still around ubuu, so there's a good chance that he'll reply.
However, I advise him to be cautions about this whole thing since he'll be basically doxing himself. If he finds no problem by doing so then it's alright to post about it, but if he doesn't then I'd recommend to hand over a mail address where people interested can contact him directly.

Anyway, it really feels weird to have someone successful here, considering the average post here involves mostly ranting and depression.
Well done, OP.



OP here. Well, success didn't last long -_- it's a long story but, basically, I found out the publisher was majorly screwing me behind my back, so I had to protect myself and sever the contract. Of course, the book was immediately removed from all points of sale.
Good news is - my agent has just found me a publisher for an English version (minor publisher, but still), so I guess it was more of a case of 'a door closes, a gate opens'. Not even sure if that saying exists in English but whatever.

In the meantime I'll link one of the good reviews the original Italian got - doxing myself but I really don't see who would give a fuck.



Good luck with your next publisher!

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?

Why the fuck did Kikiyama approve this shit?


Crazy that haters refuse to recognize it's obvious brilliance!

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.

>As if reading her mind, the cat looks at K. and meows "Well what were you going to do with two gallons of blood anyway?"


>Something is welling up K's throat, climbing; warm, fluid, a copper pretaste—sputtering over the roof of per mouth, but it's going up, further and around the nasal cavities
it's flowing forth and recycling into her mouth, down her esophagus, flooding each alveola; thought…

no thought.


>"The two gallons are a gift," the cat purred "I've put them into your biological subspace. Imagine the powers you have now!"


K dies of haemochromatosis and 30 STD's, and the cat runs off with her body.


Meanwhile, the goblin archmage cackles softly in his tall obsidian tower, watching through his crystal ball as his cat familiar retrieves the body.

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.
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


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.


File: 1577752694499.jpg (378.83 KB, 1443x2560, 81DOPuMhhoL.jpg)

They make SAT vocab books. They shove a bunch of words, with definitions, into a fiction book to help you learn


here are some:
Charlotte's Web (easy)
Jane Eyre
Oliver Twist
A Tale of Two Cities
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes #3
To Kill a Mockingbird
A Christmas Carol
Anne of Green Gables #1
any of the book from the Harry Potter franchise
The Great Gatsby
anything by William Shakespeare


Anything by Steinbeck. Also check out Jack London - Call of the Wild.
