It was never going to be a masterpiece but I was hoping for a bit better than that. To be perfectly honest, I don't know if there's a point in continuing with it because the only people who'd ever read my crap writing are 3 random people on the internet and my grandmother. I've come to accept I have an incredibly fragile ego and can't take criticism. I'd rather live with that than continuing to waste my time making garbage.

Criticism stops you from being garbage. You need to know what you're doing wrong to get it right. Lots of people now can't deal with any criticism because they're not used to the idea they aren't perfect just the way they are with no room for improvement. They see the idea of improving as an afford to their innate perfection, and become last men who would prefer to be comfortable rather than good.
Make yourself good. Go through the pain so you can become better than you are now. Otherwise you will one day look back and see your potential and have to for the millionth time convince yourself that even if you had put in the effort, you would have never have been good, but find yourself adding, "and even if I could have become good with all the time I had then, I have too little time left now so again there is no point in trying". That's what you're actually choosing: to build your self esteem on sand.

Should I submit my short stories to online competitions? There's a fairly respected one in my country which deals with genre fiction, and the winners usually move on to standard national competition organized by publishers.

Or should I just contact publishers directly once I have a few short stories done and edited? The problem with the online competition is that the jury reviewing each short story is composed mostly of women with strong preference for socially progressive sci-fi/fantasy. I'm writing bleak masculine horror and not sure if I'm ready to get shat on and cancelled for everyone to see on the website.

>do both
Yeah that's the most reasonable route, but what I'm a little worried about is submitting my beginner attempts to public criticism. From what I can tell it's better than at least 50% of stuff they're usually receiving, but they're also pretty ruthless at destryoing what they don't like - sometimes from purely perspective perspective such as atmosphere, tone or social/political implications.

>ideas for your stories
History of drug abuse and severe alcoholism, bullying/getting bullied, cucking/getting cucked, and lately social isolation. That and a lifetime of media consumption obviously. I'd probably pick alcohol withdrawals as my most intense inspiration, it's real life horror basically.

I get that. I’m the kind of person that I want to be great from the beginning. It’s up to you I guess. There’s pros and cons to both and I can’t really help you with that. Submitting would let you know concretely how they’re received but if you don’t get proper feedback and rather just a rejection, well, maybe not so much.

We have more in common it seems. I just really struggle with story ideas. I know what sort of genres and type of stories I want to write but actually coming up with characters, events, beginnings, and endings without just taking it from someone where else is a challenge.

>coming up with characters, events, beginnings, and endings without just taking it from someone where else is a challenge
Yeah, it's near impossible to come up with something entirely original. What I've done personally is a thorough study of auhors closests to my natural storytelling instinct (Poe, Kafka, Burroughs, Ligotti etc.), attempting to find patters of how they deal with character creations and plots, then settle for a pattern to start off with. That's about 30%, then another 30% is based on real life experience with various low lifes and loose women, then 40% just imagination - the horror elements.

I'm somewhat sympathetic to the "psychological model" of magik, where your rituals are just ways of programming the unconscious. The problem I have is that if you take a broadly materialist view (which if you don't why not pick a cool energy model or something?) it seems pretty pointless. Yeah I could spend ages working myself into a suggestible state so my sigil will imprint, or I could just do the thing I'm trying to cast directly. What's the point of hoping the unconscious will take the wheel when there's an easier alternative?

I guess it could be useful for people with depression or whatever, but what else?

I find it very difficult to cope with being ugly. Most of the things I do in my life are in some way influenced by my omnipresent hyperconciousness regarding my ugliness. In fact in retrospect I believe my entire entire desire to write poetry was spawned by a need to "make up" for the ugliness I inflict on other people by existing.
I don't think going sexless has had a fortifying effect on my psyche or spirit. I don't feel any connection to God or a deeper spirituality by being chaste. I just feel malformed and burdensome. My entire ideology and way of navigating the world is based on beauty and I can't even look at myself in the mirror.

It’s because you think like a man and without realizing it you’re angry that women don’t think like men do and act like men do. Forget what mainstream media and science says, men and women might as well be different species. You will never find a woman that thinks and acts like a man does the same way you’ll never find a man who can act like a woman does (and I mean far beyond the superficial bullshit of just acting feminine, there are layers to this shit.) Anyway, when you start realizing that women are completely different to men and that it’s actually a good thing because they have qualities that we as men severely lack in but are necessary to survive as an intelligent species. A real man doesn’t get mad at the fact women are the way they are or get mad at the world for being the way it is. A real man is hyper aware of how stupid shit is around him and how many feces flinging monkeys are in his midst and he continues to work hard to better himself, his family (wife and kids too), and humanity as a whole. It’s just about the noblest thing a human being can do and it’s something only men can do. I say all this and I’m not MGTOW or incel, I’m getting married this year.

People cannot sustain themselves on reason alone. Do not expect people to turn on the hand that feeds them in favor of the mouth that enlightens them — the story of Jesus teaches us this.
There has never been a political revolution based on “ideas.” First comes the revolutionary climate then comes the “ideas.” We do not live in a world of ideas: we live in the world of the dying. People want to extend themselves into the world. Everything that permits extension is subjectively good; everything that opposes extension is subjectively bad.
Sadly, man is a rather mindless creature. He is driven by his will to live — the will to power being subordinate to this primary motivation. It is quite true that man can be conditioned to live for “after worlds,” but he will only accept such conditioning if life in this world is denied to him. As long as the promise of this world is kept alive, man shall hear nothing of “after worlds.” Nothing is better than the real thing.

I fear it's too late for me though.

I am slowly working my way thru the stack of books I have. Sometimes it feels like I am adding little blocks of knowledge to my brain but I actually can't remember most of what I read (nor do I want to). I wonder if the information in books you consume over time really does gradually change your mind. This is the idea behind Lectio Divina. You and God sit with the text and passively absorb it. "I ponder your word day and night". What I like about the Bible is how you don't even need to "read it", it's the opposite of other books. With Scripture you can really think about a word or a phrase for a very long time. If you pray with the psalms a lot you start thinking about the words randomly during the day, it is interesting. Thomas Merton called the psalms "bread in the wilderness" and I agree. Scripture is the only literature I can simply sit with as opposed to read and I like that very much.

I'm young, I have talents (writing is not one of them), and I have a desire to do something with my life, so I don't have much of a choice but to do so.
I understand that none of this constitutes a problem but I find the whole thing very strange, and knowing that it's only a matter of time before I have a life of my own makes me really appreciate being able to sit in my chair and play DOOM all day. Cardiacs is (are?) a good band.

I have a sinking feeling that I'm one of those lukewarm believers the Apostles were talking about. I believe, but that's not enough, is it? I'm caught in between enjoying it when I beat off or act in a way I know I shouldn't and periods where I feel revulsion for my actions and intense self-hatred for my lack of willpower. That's not the right approach at all, and I know that, but I can't help the way I feel. I want to start living in a better way, repent, and become a better person, but at the same time, part of me wants to just keep being lazy, give up no vices, put everything off til tomorrow, and think everything will work itself out eventually. And "part of me" is kind of an attempt at avoiding responsibility, since when I'm being lazy or passing another Sunday whacking it to hentai, I enjoy what I'm doing and want to keep doing it. Only afterwards do I feel like what I did was wrong, and that makes me very uncomfortable with myself. I've read a few works by saints and elders, and they all agree that some people, no matter how much you do for them, won't make the choices they need to make in order to be saved. Am I one of those people? Am I going to just occupy my stupid little rut my whole life, always shying away from doing what I know I need to be doing, always one step away from where I need to be?
For a while now, I've been praying for some sort of nudge, just a small little push in the right direction so I can stop teetering back and forth on a precipice, with Christ on one side and apathetic laziness on the other. Now I wonder how many times I've received just such a nudge, only to pull myself back from the cliff's edge at the last second, telling myself I need more time to decide.
This isn't the first time I've been through this thought process. Most of the time, I end up concluding that I might as well kill myself, since I'm obviously never going to take the steps I need to, so I might as well accept the foregone conclusion and go to Hell. That's not a healthy way of looking at it, and I (obviously) chicken out of doing anything as drastic as an heroing, but the thought remains in the back of my head, making me feel like whatever I do will be pointless since I have so little willpower that I'll just end up giving up or failing halfway through whatever I try.
I don't know where to go from here. I've been thinking about sending an email to a local Orthodox priest for a few weeks, even though I'm a Mormon by birth, but I always hesitate and delete the draft before I send it. I wish I was more decisive, but wishing won't get me anywhere either. I guess all I can hope for is that I get that push I need somewhere down the line, just much stronger than I thought it would be, and I'm forced to finally make a decision and stick with it.

I had all those same issues as you, but reading about the "interior life" helped me, especially the Bible verses associated with it like John 15:5 and Luke 10:38-42. I used to masturbate a lot, but now I don't really feel the desire, but if I start going to lust or masturbation I say a quick prayer and it goes away. Prayer is very important, read 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. I do still have trouble with indecisiveness, but I'm not as anxious about it as before.

It's not that I hate people, or that I think I'm better than them. It's just that they do such petty things in their day to day lives thinking it will make them happy.
I gave up trying to be happy three years ago, after agonizing for almost 8 years that I WOULDN'T be happy unless I was dead.
It's only in giving up the pursuit of happiness that I find how miserable everyone makes themselves. Aspiration is one thing, passion in the only thing that keeps me going now. Giving up happiness isn't about apathy, you're still allowed to care about things, and people. Even love can be a comfort, but it should NEVER be in pursuit of happiness. Your life's worth is dictated by YOU, not someone else. You have worth beyond what you mean to another person.
Anon, you deserve better.

Love won't fix a broken man, a caring hand can push a broken heart together, and pull you out of the abyss, but it won't mend the ache, or cast the abyss away. Only YOU can heal your heart, and walk away from that cliff. And even if the hand never leaves you, what then? Are you satisfied knowing they're living for you? Is your imagined happiness worth theirs? Happiness is just selfishness given a pretty name.
True contentment can only be found alone in silence. To be at peace with God and the universe he made.

You don’t have to study philosophy to think about philosophy. In fact, I would wager that studying philosophy is today is the single most sure fire way to not actually think about philosophy.

Knowing that, if you want to take the gamble on being a professional academic philosopher, then that’s your prerogative but if you ask me, it’s not a very good idea nor do I think it’s something you really want. Can you make a single philosopher currently working in the academy? Is there even anything in the academy that has papers being written about it, which you are concerned about. Use your library to go read some academic publications in philosophy. See if those are topics you actually want to read and write more than be an engineer or a doctor or whatever. I would suggest you study something more professional, if you study anything at all, which by the way, you actually don’t have to do considering you’re not totally sure what you would do. Under no circumstances should you take on a mountain of debt and beyond that, it really doesn’t matter that much. It’s just something to get you a job, which will always be just a job.

If I was a politician I would campaign to eliminate or at least drastically reduce the income tax. I would be elected almost immediately. There is no greater injustice for a working person to pour their precious time into toil for the government to take such a disgusting portion of it.

Instead I would increase taxes on sources of passive income like the appreciation of assets. This seems to be the most obvious and just decision. All value is ultimately generated by labor, and so it ought to be rewarded as such.

I live in Finland so the dept is something which I am not worried about. My exgf really got me thinking this subject of studies and got me down to this downward spiral of insecurities of my studies. She was one of those few people who knew what they want from their lives. The way she was so passionate about her studies made reflect on my own studies. The former is because I just went to uni without no direction or no dreams.The sad truth really is that nobody appreciates philosophy and it is just some sort of autistic talk nowadays. I have bounced back and fort for couple of years after I left upper secondary school. Something that really made me wake up from this romanticized dream of philosophy is the fact that nobody really didn't even care about Linkola when he lived or died.

Without knowing your girlfriend, it’s much more likely that she either lied about “knowing” what she wants to do with their life or she thought/thinks she knew/knows what she wanted/wants to do with her life but actually didn’t/doesn’t. This is very common and not intended as a slight against your girlfriend, but it’s really good that had an influence on you regardless. Still, I can’t really help but agree with your assessment. All that said and well considered, what do you want to do? I don’t even know what the situation is like in Finland. In America, things are very different.

So i've been very interested in pursuing studies in the fields of linguistics with possibly ending up working in anthropological or socio linguistics, but i've been noticing that a lot of the recent academic works that are getting published seem to revolve around the topics of queers, ''subverting the patriarchy'', and other issues of that nature. Now, i'm not completely opposed to learning about this stuff, but i'm afraid that it's probably going to be a chore where i would have to sit through more preaching about the status quo. I'm more interested in getting a clinical look at the state of verbal communication in these contemporary times so i could have the tools to further develop my own theories and ambitions. Psycholinguistics also seem appealing, but it might be too detached from where i'm hoping to arrive.
Basically, i'm asking if there are any linguistics anons that could share some valuable insight and wisdom about this field and offer some guidance to this retard. That would be greatly appreciated.

I get what you’re saying. It’s tough. Last year ended up being a breaking point for me in this respect. So I basically just limit my use of the internet to the bare minimum (e.g. for work use and daily groupchat antics), stopped reading the news, and generally sequestered myself with loved ones. So far, so good. SJW bullshit rarely intrudes into my daily life now; even when it does for whatever reason (and it does—just last week one of the sites I work for sent a guide on how to write “inclusively”) I just ignore it, or accept that nothing can be done about it and move on.

I can see where you're coming from. I've mostly been a singeplayer kinda guy for the longest time. I rarely bothered much with MP, the last time I was so invested was in Titanfall2's MP that too by my own accord. Besides that it's mostly Apex/Rocket League with my friends. Maybe you should play a set time with them only? I know playing throughout the night can be exhausting and make you feel like you've wasted your day. I've been there.
I like games and no that when it comes to interactive medium nothing can come close but the amount of time and energy can get ridiculous. Especially with how companies are doing whatever it takes to make you feel like you're missing out on it. But I'm so used to the fact of playing, that I don't wanna be used to it anymore. I wanna do something different with my lives. Not counting the baby years, I've basically spent 18 years playing games and got into the habit of doing that only instead of knowing how to delegating my day to make time to cultivate other things I'm interested in.

No, at least not all of it. Imperial Germany was a nation practically drowning in reading, yet it was teeming with vitality and purpose. There is something peculiar to anime that seems to leave its readers crippled somehow. Or better put, provides a simulacrum of fulfillment that, paradoxically, kills its viewer’s soul a little bit with every watching. When Gordon Lightfoot sand that “Sometimes I think it's a sin/When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again,” he may as well have been talking about the experience of watching anime.

They represent hard work and motivate oneself to keep improving. One should strive to better oneself and not to please others, for that is a path of deceive that won't last.
>>17883184
It depends, really. Fighting anime are more hype and stuff like Yuru Camp is comfier. Drama is fine and faster to finish in manga form. But if you're a purist you go for the LN.

> Better to ditch all pop/nerd culture entirely.

Agreed, it’s only that anime was specifically mentioned earlier. But Western pop culture in general is corrosive to the soul. I’m grateful that because of my strict upbringing, it never figured prominently in my childhood, and therefore held no nostalgic attraction to me as an adult.

Yes, I'm a virgin, so what? Being one or not has no effect on my well being. On the other hand, daily exercise does.

Your defensiveness would seem to suggest otherwise.

> On the other hand, daily exercise does.

I’ll admit that it’s probably a better coping mechanism for unfulfilled physical desire than anime.

> Every man exists to save himself

I think this is deeply true. At what point though, does saving equate to simple escape from life?

Personally, I’ve resolved to not make it to old age. I’ve heard it said that there is no pretty way to die. That may be true but I believe there is no pretty way to grow old. I would have it so that I go out somewhere near middle age and leave growing elderly to those who maybe haven’t considered it so much. What to do in the meantime then? Well, I need to save myself. I’ve found a way to live life such that life is redeemed. I’ve found a way to live such that living, with all its pain and suffering, will have been worth it a million times over. The problem is, I don’t see a way to actualize it. I’ve come to believe that I’ve already grown too old. To pour myself into my art of living at this point would be, at best, unsatisfactory. This is an endeavor which needed to be started 10 years ago or more. Otherwise, the race has already began and I’m far behind the pack.

What do I do then? It seems to me that suicide is the obvious choice. I’ve already reconciled not living to old age and this life worth living is not capable of being lived. So what then is the point? Would it not be best to just opt out of the game early?

Stop reading books too. Too many authors were depressed. You see, actually the world is comprised of nefarious “things” which have a bad influence on you and the solution is to run from them.

Yes, stop reading “depressing” books. Don’t let the fact that Europe and Japan at their zeniths were awash in “depressing” books. Because you hurt anime feelings peepee poopoo.

I want to start writing and I also want to move to another country. There are plenty of writers who did this successfully but none that I know of who did both at the same time. That’s given me pause to think about delaying one or the other...

at some point you have to accept that your culture is the post-world. my culture is the culture where most women have had abortions, most have cheated, few come from stable homes, few are even close to their elders. a world that is some kind of torrent of mental illness no-one really has a grasp on, a world of the deepest and most sincere value-crises. People still know something about Love, but no one really knows how to live it. no one was protected, no one lived a simple life. no one felt safe. and very few have known the sweetness of faith, and everyone is following simple instructions laid down in code inside them, against the grain of Gods will, just trying to cope. this is us. this is my culture.
