    Genre Fiction vs Literary Fiction

    This is a curious topic that popped into my head yesterday, so I thought I'd write about it. That topic is the supposed dichotomy between genre fiction and literary fiction. This is especially pertinent on a website dedicated to writing fiction, in which some authors may even have aspirations to be recognized as published writers. Pretty much anyone who's even remotely familiar with literature

    In which I wank the superiority of economics as the best social science

    I'm bored, so I decided to make a brief case for economics, namely why it's superior to the other social sciences—sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, et cetera—by measure of rigour, income, objectivity/accuracy, and applicability. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think I can give pretty good reasons nevertheless.

    Spiders n shit

    There’s been an inexplicable increase of spiders in my apartment. In the past 2 days I’ve caught and killed 3 spiders, with the last one being a daddy long legs. The little bastard with its long ass legs was right next to my stove.

    Where the literal FUCK are these spiders coming from?!?

    Apropos of the Sinners – Update 15

    Yeah, so... I don't know when I'm ever going to continue writing this story, let alone complete it. Aside from the fact that the scope of the plot has gotten too big and complex for my own good, the next arc is extremely difficult to pull off and will only work if done right due to how experimental and different it is. And frankly, I don't trust myself one bit to write it well. And I don't have

    Attack on Titan is ruined

    It pains me to say this because Attack on Titan is (or was, I should say) my favourite anime/manga of all time, but holy shit, that final chapter was GOT season 8 levels of bad. In fact it may just be worse.

Apropos of the Sinners – Update 14 · 5:43am January 2nd

So I've finally published the first chapter of part 7, and I gotta say, this might just be my masterpiece... until I write something better 6 months later. However, don't expect the next chapter till summer this year (2021). I only wanted to get the first chapter out of the way. I fully intend to write all the chapters of this arc first so that they're all ready when I start publishing them.

I also plan to go back and revise a bunch of different scenes, cuz I thought the writing in some of them was kind of bad and not up to standard. I thank Soge for gushing over part 3 and how supposedly great it is (served as a nice ego boost), but from my perspective it could use some work. Not that I'm going to be changing any of the content or story or anything, I'll just rewrite some lines here and there to make it sound better/more natural. Same content, just different words.

Man, I'm making a bigger deal about this than it deserves. I'm only going to be making a few small changes to how some of the lines are written.

Anyway, planning for the story is going very well. I honestly think that every part is better than the last, so that if I were to rank them from worst to best, I'd just rank them in chronological order. That's crazy to me. Just to lay out the progress thus far:

-Parts 1&2 (Financial Dispute arc)
-Part 3 (Cluster arc)
-Part 4 (Birthday arc)
-Part 5 (Train arc)
-Part 6 (Nova arc)
-Part 7, chapters 1-??? (Insurgency arc)

Oh, and one final announcement.

I had developed a whole magic system a while back with the intention to introduce it in this part of the story, but I won't be doing that. It's not that I dissatisfied with my magic system (it was pretty in-depth) but because I don't think it will be necessary for the action scenes I have in mind, plus I'm not sure how to implement it in a way that feels natural, considering that it wouldn't have been mentioned in-universe till now. So... sorry, PaulAsaran, for eliciting your help with that. Didn't go anywhere. But I'll still hold on to it for future stories.

So yeah. Story is going at a super good pace, characters have gotten more interesting, plot is on track to the climax, and I even think my prose is better (i.e. less messy and hard to follow). I'll see it all to the end. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably.
