I'm making a trip to southern England in a few weeks and I thought It would be nice to read a few books set there while I wait. Any suggestions that aren't Agatha Christie?
User avatar #7073 - samplethisbitch ONLINE (07/30/2015) [-]
I recently started reading Saga and now I'm up to 25, this series is pretty damn cool, anyone else got any suggestions for any graphic novels I should read. I like some marvel comics like ultimate spiderman, max punisher, deadpool v2(2008). So any suggestions for comics or Graphic novels would be nice
User avatar #7077 to #7073 - ithinkimightbelost (18 hours ago) [-]
I liked DC's Identity Crisis miniseries.

blackest night is terrific.

Is that the green lantern dead people cross over thing. I tried to read that before but had no idea where to start and I havent read much DC stuff so I wasn't getting many of the references or previous events
User avatar #7076 to #7075 - rockmanfan (07/31/2015) [-]
neither had i, but really all you needed to know where some people died, some were from an alternate universe. the rest is at least semi-explained. what's great about it is that there's multiple stories to it. you can see what the teen titans were up to during this, the justice league, the green lantern corps, it's a lot of great stuff.

Can anyone provide a link to a website where I can do a run over on my English syntax? I don't think I learned it properly, as I was having some home troubles throughout elementary/middle/high school. I'm not talking about the rules of grammar that keep me from looking like an illiterate dumbass on the internet, but the vocabulary in syntax, and being able to analyze grammar and whatnot.

Also, any opinions on this excerpt?
"Sarah, come sit with me, so we can die together."

The asteroid had been predicted months prior.
The President of the United States had come out with very grave news. Earth would be hit. Lives would be lost. It was the first of many intense moments to come. First was the mass panic, as any other life threatening event would cause. Along followed the looting and hoarding. Third, swathes of people evacuating to other countries. And lastly, the gap made by all those migrant humans. Government services eventually shut down, grocery stores closed, ghost towns formed by the bushel. Unfortunately, there were stragglers. The hidden wallflowers in society, the odd backwoods naturalist, who chose to ignore society, the few homeless who weren't able to help themselves, and the disabled who had no family left to be brought with.

The main thing I want to know is if you guys enjoyed it got the addicting feeling you get from a good hook , and whether or not anything sounds unoriginal or cliché.
I'm going to continue on with the point of view of two homeless who weren't able to leave the country in time.

So this comes across as an oral story right, someone telling the tale of whatever disaster occurred (great hook btw). This comes across by the short sentences and your anonymous narrator, the image called into my mind is of someone telling a story for dramatic effect, trying to wow his audience. With this in mind, it actually excuses some of what I might call your more awkward syntax, as n sentences that might not follow strict grammatical rules, or have odd clauses, like the naturalist bit. It would't feel right in say a news report, but in this case, it's actually intriguing. These tangents make us reflect on the storyteller, and who he might be thinking of.

Couple weird vocab choices, like "wallflowers", "bushel". These words are pretty subjective, so you use what you want to use, but to me, they sounded a little out of place. Wallflowers especially means something completely different to me, but like I said, it's your hit.

All in all, this seems pretty interesting. Only point I would make regarding your overall narrative is that you need to pick a camp regarding the nature of your cataclysm. You can be coy, or you can just come right out and say 'asteroid' or 'meteor' or 'brain eating jellyfish from Mars', but to stray between the two seems kind of pointless. You provide enough details that we lose the romantic nature of unknown doom, but stay vague enough to frustrate.

That's my two cents, anyway. Definitely keep working on it, and remember that it's never too early to start fixing.Everyone works differently, but i know if I have a good base to work from, it helps write those later chapters.
User avatar #7072 to #7068 - supahsayin (07/30/2015) [-]
Thanks for the advice m8. This is pretty much the beginnings of my written baby. It's gonna take years, I know that. Especially since it'll be my first work, and other than that I've only written essays in school
User avatar #7045 to #7044 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
Very nice, you wrote it yourself? I would recommend writing your heart out first before making some serious revisions, making a few of them here and there, but overall just focus on writing what your feeling at the moment. After your first chapter if your writing a novel you can focus on making major revisions.

This excerpt, in my opinion, does sound a bit cliche, but that's okay! Again, what I would recommend is writing a bit more and seeing where it takes you in terms of your story, and then afterwards making revisions to better adjust this excerpt's message and meaning.
User avatar #7047 to #7045 - supahsayin (07/24/2015) [-]
here it is
Hey, I have a plan for a book series that I'd be writing over the course of a good amount of years.

I'm going to condense the idea down real hard here.
Semi-Apocalyptic event happens, and the POV is you(the reader) just watching shit happens as history goes on.

It'd have some flavor of Game of Thrones - (Serious, ruthless to characters, and has many perspectives)
Major themes of this series is very Buddhistic - Everything changes, Entropy is a fact of the universe. And for shits and giggles, I'd add in some personalities or circumstances that would come in across time periods, cause of the the ideas that everything is a cycle
I'm asking if you people think it's original or if it's interesting, and if you think people in general would think it's fresh or interesting.

The timeline starts with life right after the semi-apocalyptic even, then starts to skip as life starts to change and change and change, and some points involve inner conflict, interpersonal exchanges, factions interaction/moving around/dying out, good things coming in, bad things going out, chaos, rebuilding, culture changing, language decaying, and other such stuff.

Also, it would definitely involve radiation. Not like fallout though. In many countries, nuclear reactors would degrade and break down, causing fallout in a certain radius around it. People then interacts, and shenanigans ensue. Unfortunately for people, that means lots of cancer.

Anyways, this'll span over some books.

It sounds very interesting, unfortunately I haven't read nor seen the Game of Thrones series but FunnyJunks pretty much made me aware major characters die a lot . Depending on your schedule, try and devote at least half an hour a day. How long ago did you post this?
User avatar #7049 to #7048 - supahsayin (07/24/2015) [-]
Only a week or two ago. Why do you ask?
User avatar #7051 to #7049 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
Oh that's good! I thought you were procrastinating or just didn't have time to write. If you if ever want to post a chapter on FunnyJunk, or elsewhere, let me know. I would love to read it and even provide feedback if your looking for it.
User avatar #7053 to #7051 - supahsayin (07/24/2015) [-]
Sweet! Thanks. It's always nice to have someone to give feedback on my shit.
I've gotta fo some hit right now, so when I get back, I'll work on expanding the introduction, and if it still seems cliché, I'll work on a second idea for the intro.
As of right now, my working title is "The Eventuality: A Timeline of Terra Incognita". Opinions on if it'd sound catchy to the average person por favor
User avatar #7056 to #7053 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
Fucking stellar title, I'm betting it will fit just right with your novel. Talk to ya later.

do some shit*
User avatar #7046 to #7045 - supahsayin (07/24/2015) [-]
Yes, thanks! I've been aiming to get my ass on track to writing this out as a series. I commented on this board a while ago about the overview, let me just see if I can find it.
#7040 - penultimatewriter (07/23/2015) [-]
Currently reading The Virgin Suicides and it's a depressing read. My entire thought process when reading it is encapsulated in this picture.
User avatar #7063 to #7040 - sphincterface (07/26/2015) [-]
The movie is disturbing as well...you actually see the deaths. :/
User avatar #7042 to #7040 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
Sounds interesting, what type of reader would you recommend this book to?
User avatar #7050 to #7042 - penultimatewriter (07/24/2015) [-]
I really couldn't say. It's sort of a depressing tragedy. I'd recommend it to anybody that enjoys looking at the human condition, sexuality, the innocence of young girls. I can't seem to find an audience for it because I don't know anybody who'd want to read about four young women trying to kill themselves.
User avatar #7052 to #7050 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
I'll definitely give it a read, but maybe not anytime soon. I've got a deadline by August 1st and I'm starting to panic. I'm wasting time browsing fj when I should be working I've got plenty of time tho, right?
User avatar #7055 to #7052 - penultimatewriter (07/24/2015) [-]
What's the deadline for?
User avatar #7057 to #7055 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
I've signed a nondisclosure agreement, but I can say it's programming for a mobile application. Do you have any urgent work yourself?
#7058 to #7057 - penultimatewriter (07/24/2015) [-]
I'm afraid not. I work at a Care Home, and spend my free time writing short stories that will never be finished. I then give up out of doubt, destroy them, and go back to work. I don't have a whole lot going on.
User avatar #7059 to #7058 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
Well as long as your happy and not panicking I wouldn't mind living as you for a day. Also, have you shared any of your short stories? I like short stories.
User avatar #7060 to #7059 - penultimatewriter (07/24/2015) [-]
I never really share them. They never get past the first draft before I start losing my shit over character creation, plotting, and apathy.

Here's something I wrote. Nothing special. Just part of an old story I wanted to write once.
User avatar #7061 to #7060 - niunep (07/24/2015) [-]
I thought it was very interesting, especially when the narrator told Lorna he was going to kill her. I thought things would've turned out a bit like American Psycho. I cracked up when he said "M’lady," I'm not sure if said it out sarcasm, but it reminded of the dumb fj posts with the fedora tipping and things. Overall it was good read and it has me interested in what the first three parts revolved around.

You should post these kinds of short stories on funnyjunk, I'm sure the community would appreciate it. Also thanks for sharing it with me! I'm gonna go grab a bite then start on some work, later

Right guys, I need some help to pick the next book for me to read. I've been reading some terry pratchett books, mort, colour of magic and reaper man, and would like some reccomendation on the next one. I really enjoy the stories involving the character "Death" but any pratchett book would suffice. Just wanted to hear what your favorites are, so that i can take that into consideration when i buy my next.
User avatar #7065 to #7035 - dasistwunderbar (07/29/2015) [-]
Soul Music is an excellent choice if you liked Death, but I'd recommend trying 'Guards! Guards!'. It's a new main character, and my particular favourite, the hard-nosed detective Samuel Vimes. It's great satire if you've ever read a detective novel, and even if not, it's hilarious in its own right.
User avatar #7066 to #7065 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/29/2015) [-]
Thanks, i think i'll try guards guards out.
User avatar #7067 to #7066 - dasistwunderbar (07/29/2015) [-]
How did you like colour of magic? It's not my cup of tea, but my friend swears it's the best in the series.
User avatar #7069 to #7067 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/29/2015) [-]
I think it is rather good, but out of the few i've read so far i think reaper man is really strong.
User avatar #7070 to #7069 - dasistwunderbar (07/29/2015) [-]
I can get behind that. Bill Door is my favourite version of Death. You should read the light fantastic though, nice round-off for the storyline, if nothing else.
User avatar #7071 to #7070 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/29/2015) [-]
Yeah bill door was a good "character" he actually developed throughout the story. it was quite touching in the end.
User avatar #7034 - raribear (07/21/2015) [-]
Has anyone here read A Million Little Pieces by James Frey?
User avatar #7033 - rereviven ONLINE (07/21/2015) [-]
So I have to write an essay on two books but I'm stuck

The books I had to read are A Prayer for Owen Meany and Going After Cacciato, and the prompt is to discuss the significance of point of view in both of them, keeping in mind characterization in the novel and narrative itself

Owen Meany is in first person and Cacciato is in third person. I have a few ideas but it has to be 1000 words, can someone help?
User avatar #7038 to #7033 - rockmanfan (07/22/2015) [-]
say the same thing over and over again but change the wording so it sounds like you're supporting your original idea. great way to get up to that word count.

I'm looking for a video.

It was posted as a comment on a content about the gorrilaz lead singer being Double D.

The video was a fan made dark souls music video some of the scenes were: Kirk with kaathe, A close up of solaire that transitioned to him with the sunlight maggot on his head and Kirk giving humanity to quelaags sister.
If you can provide source as well then you get a bonus point.

I want to create characters but I keep shooting myself in the foot and losing hope in what I write. Can anybody maybe give me some examples in what makes a character good or what a character is made up of? I'm losing hope in ever tackling this problem. My work just sits there, undone, because I lose all faith in my writing.
User avatar #7036 to #7030 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/22/2015) [-]
I have sort of the same problem, in that I tire of my work before finishing it. This is because i plan it out in my head mostly and forget to write it, and thus by the time I can spare the time to write I already know everything that's going to happen. As for your question I have some advice: try to create a personality for each character, and separate them individually. The most common mistake people make when they start writing is that every character has the same personality and therefore have no distinct qualities of their own. Another thing to remember is to not make your character perfect, give him or her flaws. Like Rincewind from the discworld series, he's cowardly and an incredibly inept mage but people like him. Same goes for characters like rorshach from watchmen and walter white from Breaking bad, both do really bad things and take up a role as an anti-hero but are still likable. And if you can't manage to create a character from scatch, use someone as inspiration to have something to build off of.
That's about what I've got to say, hope it helps.
User avatar #7031 to #7030 - rockmanfan (07/21/2015) [-]
the best advice i can give is this: what are they good at? what do they suck at? what scenarios would these advantages/ disadvantages be apparent? what is their goal in life? what are they striving for, and what are they willing to do to accomplish it?

Hey guys, has anyone heard of or read this book that is based on Gatsby? It has the same theme, same amount of main characters only that it is about this high school kid who is throws parties every weekend or some shit at his house only to impress this girl he likes. I remember reading that book back in high school junior year but I never really paid attention to it back then. I'm slowly starting to gain interest in books and I wonder if anyone has heard of this one. Can't remember its name for some fucking reason.
User avatar #7022 - penultimatewriter (07/18/2015) [-]
Does anybody know of any books with decent characterization?
User avatar #7039 to #7022 - ljxjlos (07/23/2015) [-]
Wheel of Time is pretty good what this is concerned - it is the stereotypical "small-village-guys-get-involved-into-something-bigger-and-become-heroes&qu ot;, but it´s damn interestingly done, especially with how "magic" and politics are involved in that case.

Most books by Brandon Sanderson are pretty great, too, what character development are concerned - he is also the one who finished WoT after the authors death.
User avatar #7037 to #7022 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/22/2015) [-]
Terry pratchett's reaper man is a good one. At least if you like fantasy comedy. It starts off with Death being dismissed from his job because greater beings thinks he's developed too much of a personality. He gets to live a full "human" life for the first time and takes a job offer at a small farm. As he lives and interact with other people he gains an understanding of human life that he didn't have before.
User avatar #7027 to #7022 - dasistwunderbar (07/18/2015) [-]
I always figured really good characters have to develop. Otherwise they're not truly characterized, they're just serving a purpose for the author. I thought a book with good character development was Arcanum by Simon Morden, it starts as more or less generic fantasy, but suddenly magic drops out of the world. Everything is forced to change. Top notch character development over the course of the story.

Weed

Today I had to go into surgery to get a DNC after being 11 1/2 weeks pregnant and being in the ER the day before and having a miscarriage. After being hit in the face by the father of my angel and my roommate at work and the other in a mental hospital I decided to attempt to kill myself. But before then I decided "I'm going to have myself one last bowl," turned on me and the father's favorite avenged sevenfold song and wrote out my suicide note. (This is also after a long self harming session) I tied two scarves together and flung them over the tree, took another bong rip and one a look at my first and only ultrasound picture and kicked the chair over. Next thing I know I wake up on the ground with the chair and semi-large branch on too of me. The tree I chose was dead and in my emotional-bakedness. I sat down back inside and took a couple more bong rips and ate a Popsicle and cleaned up my mess. Do I feel beyond sad still and hopeless, of course but now my body and mind are on a better, calmer vibration. Unfortunately I'm dankrupt and won't be working for two weeks to recover. Fortunatley: I'm still alive
TLDR: I had a miscarriage, attempted to kill myself but smoked pot before so I didn't do it correctly then smoked more after and now I'm even more grateful for weed and life.

**penultimatewriter used "*roll picture*"**
**penultimatewriter rolled image**Got a question for a few people here. I'm an aspiring writer, and I seem to spend a lot of time doubting myself and my work. I seem to overthink characters, attempting to break them down from general information to motivations, values, backstory, traits and I was just wondering, to you, as a reader/readers, what is it you think makes characters that you are interested in reading?
User avatar #7007 to #7001 - supahsayin (07/17/2015) [-]
A good portion of what makes characters enjoyable for people in general is their ability to relate to the character.

Let's make some hypotheticals, starting from pretty basic ideas:
Lysa Green is an office secretary in pre stock market crash america. She's strong, assertive, and sassy when she can get away with it.
Then, one technique to add character development is to throw situations that those adjectives don't work well with. Pull situations out where she can't use her assertiveness, sassiness, or strength. She can't report any problems that a ditzy billionaire's son may cause, as he's in kahoots with her employers, and will be fired.
etc, etc.
Other points are to make situations that the general reader can relate to.
For one, times that are hard for everyone. I couldn't afford to leave hurricane wilma, so I had to go through that shit with my family.
I'm sure I'd know that feel when the stock market crashes.
any love interests that may come up, whether you choose for her to get married and settle down.
I'm sure that 1930s assertive lysa would be aggressively looking for a good man to settle down with(and when I mean good man, I mean filthy stinkin' rich good man). Early on in my hypothetical book, she gets married, possibly has a child, but as I(the author) doesn't feel like writing about a mother/child relationship, she doesn't have a child. She could get a divorce, or he could die. The general reader in america loves an underdog story, so you could end up with her soaring way above where she started(Literally, flying in an early Jet Aircraft that her sugar daddy may have bought her in the late 1940's, after the war.)

Also, as a hopeful english major, I'm gonna ask you reciprocate a response with some feedback if you thought that was a well made comment
#7008 to #7007 - penultimatewriter (07/17/2015) [-]
**penultimatewriter used "*roll picture*"**
**penultimatewriter rolled image**I'd say it was a well-made response. It makes sense that our characters should be relatable. I ended up breaking down an entire list of things and I came up with this when creating a character and I'm not entirely sure I'm going in the right direction.

Appearance
General information, job, age, orientation etc, etc.
Personality (traits)
Values
Backstory
And I plan these things out until I see the character in my head. These things are what the character is. Anything else I think of is what the character will be, from inner conflict, motivations, arc, and change. I just want to know if I'm doing this right? I know it seems like I'm going overboard with my creation, but in reality I fill up maybe a page maximum with this stuff and use it for notes. I'm just constantly doubting myself as a writer.

Your information was great help though, really. It makes complete sense to have a relatable character, but what if some of the audience can't relate? What if people didn't suffer through hurricane Wilma? Is that a problem? Will my audience not be as involved and ultimately not enjoy my story?
User avatar #7009 to #7008 - supahsayin (07/17/2015) [-]
A template like that is focusing on material, physical traits of a character - something that I say should be focused on in a visual medium, like a movie, or a painting. People say writers paint a page with these words, but it's not the same, through and through.
You're dealing with people - complex creatures, who adapted subtleness in social situations.They'll usually have an instinct for extrapolating.
We've been trained in school to tell the way an author is portraying their idea.
'How does the author want me to feel about humans when he calls them meatbags, or if he calls them something nice, etc, etc.'
And those two facts combined allow for writers to make absolutely well-written characters while listing a lot less than you might think you need.
In short, the book should list out a basic guideline of the character. Any more, and it should be handled by the actions your character pulls off, and other progressions in your story.
"Ben Atticus keeps himself busy on the job at his paper-making company by playing little mind games with his coworkers. Tricks, pranks, all the activities he perfected as a child. One day, he'd be putting Quinine in the water dispenser. The next, he'd use his large stature to hide sarai's coffe mug. " I know that the setting and material is boring, but I'm just using this as a placeholder. You don't need to initiate a story, or even make the character by laying a character out. You can use the ambiguity in your character to make things happen.

And as for relatability, the concepts that people relate to are very far and plentiful.
Who here can relate to having their family getting fucked over by a rival royal house?
Well, unless you're sansa stark, you can't quite see that happening, can you?
Continuing in second comment
User avatar #7015 to #7009 - penultimatewriter (07/17/2015) [-]
I have a question. You say that a template that helps me figure out a characters values, motivations, and certain traits should be focused more on a visual medium, but wouldn't these things help in the direction and creation of character? I don't want to feel like I'm not creating a fully-formed character when it comes down to writing, I want to at least know a good portion because it can help shape a plot. Am I wrong for thinking that?
User avatar #7018 to #7015 - supahsayin (07/17/2015) [-]
You're A okay with recording your character, but don't let something like their predetermined height or backstory get in the way of allowing your plot to roll out smoothly. If you need to change something, change something. keep track of it though, since you might not have a professional editor to spot that.
User avatar #7019 to #7018 - penultimatewriter (07/17/2015) [-]
Oh of course. Not everything I write is in stone. In retrospect, I really like to get a feel for who my character is and who he was, and I like to look at them, looking at everything about them and seeing what logical arc they would have, and sometimes the opposite. I don't set in stone height or anything. I like to just keep a little record of information which helps me keep the focus on writing the story, and not changing details about my character every time something changes.
User avatar #7010 to #7009 - supahsayin (07/17/2015) [-]
There's a lot of psychology going on in the works of how a character is relateable, but I'll name a couple of ways that people deal with characters they haven't shared situations with. Tomorrow! It's 4:15 in the morning, and I'm seeing how big of a response this could be
User avatar #7011 to #7010 - penultimatewriter (07/17/2015) [-]
I'll wait patiently for the rest of your reply.

Also, what exactly do you think makes a character three dimensional? I ask people all the time and they have no fuckin' clue.
User avatar #7012 to #7011 - supahsayin (07/17/2015) [-]
Giving a character flesh and blood is something, I think, happens when your major techniques and rules come into harmony, which ends up with immersion into the book.
I say read more books that have been praised by lots of people. Following people who are proven as good at what they do will help you a lot.

I've recommended people the book "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I am in love with that book. it is a feast of a book. Be prepared for setting down the book for three reasons. One: looking up a new vocabulary word. Two: feels man. Three: Some fucked up shit is going down.
It has some incest in it, but you're probably supposed to feel pretty gross about it.

I recently read a good portion of the Sherlock Holmes series, and that brings about strategies in mystery novels, but it also comes out with another type of 'admirable' character: one who is the best at something.

Vagina: Flower, peach, pussy, cunt, slit, axe-wound (haha), and labia, clit (I'm aware it's not the full vagina but megh), gash.

Some of these are romantic, some or not.

Thanks, I'm sure some of these might help me.

you could also find more erotica help on the NSFW boards. I'm sure there's people on them who dabble in text pornos

So somebody explain what the fuck is going on with DC comics right now. Batman Bruce Wayne, not the horrible Gordon version of Batman , died then became.....a god? What?

as far as I can tell, DC and Marvel are purposely fucking up universes to tell better stories. Brucey Batman should be coming back to the New 52 run soon.

Thank goodness. I miss Bruce as Batman already.

Has anybody read this? I just finished it and it's definitely one of my favorites now. An amazing book.

Definitely looks interesting, maybe I'll give it a read in the future. Also, don't spoil me, but is whole novel great or just certain pieces that really stand out?
User avatar #7062 to #7043 - SuperHyperCrazy (07/24/2015) [-]
I think the whole novel is great. It gets super in-depth and science-y at some parts, which might lose you (they sure as hell lost me,) but it's still an awesome book. It's one of the first books I've read in a while that I really couldn't put down.

Where can I find free online copies of Magic: the Gathering books?
I'd like links and downloads that won't give me viruses, please

So, on the off-chance that anybody will be here, and on the off-chance that that person knows both series, I have a question. I just got a few books of thr Sharpe series by Cornwell, and also a few books of The Wheel of Time, by Jordan. Which one do you think is better/should I read first?

I don´t know about the first one, but WoT is fantastic.

One of my all-time favorite series.

It can get a bit strechted during the middle (which is far, far away on your way) but it´s worth every damn second.

We suffered the barbs of a thousand cold nights at sea, spending every minute drunken as dogs, not caring what tomorrow would bring. This life made us a rough and rude bunch of men, perhaps it was the eerie creaking of the mast in the early morning, perhaps the dried salt on our cracked lips or the fact that some of us would soon have a noose around our necks. This mattered not when we sang, when we sang about home, when we sang about love. We sang as we sailed into the distance, longing for home and for love. We were pirates, and death was no stranger.
