    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 15 · 7:16pm May 17th

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 any formal education in writing/storytelling, so it's not as if I know what I'm doing.

With all that said, I more or less have the whole plot outlined, and I know most of the story beats, character decisions, and general things that happen, it's just a matter of actually writing it down. I'll try to get out a few thousand words a month, if I can manage it, and slowly release new chapters over time. It's a slow process because a) I'm editing my own horsewords; and b) I'm a slow ass writer.

There's also another big fic I really want to write, with Twilight as the protagonist. It starts off fairly lighthearted but gets supremely dark in the second half, and there's going to be a lot of parallels to real-world extremist politics. Might prove to be controversial. Still not sure if I should use the AU tag or not, because some things in it kinda contradict canon. We'll see.
