"So it's time we both kill ourselves?" Kay feebly asked.
Merlin slowly blinked with a resolved grin. "We have abused our privilege for far too long. It is time we say goodbye to this world."
Kay gently took out a shotgun from his coat.
"Now put your head close to mine. We must be punished for our wickedness."
Merlin put his head adjacent to Kay and pretended he was taking a selfie. He made a peace sign in his final moments.
Kay cocked the gun and pressed the trigger... The end.

Am I wrong when I think that this is happening because advertising is now the writer's (or any other creative's) burden?
From what I gather, publishers do not want to gamble on a new horse. They will look for horses who are already popular in one way or the other. This means that unless you are Cormac McCarthy or Stephen King, you have to make your own popularity, which means you have to make it off the internet.
Awards are given out to horses who are ensured to be popular because they cater to a certain demographic (feminist+award=women will buy). They exist to make popular people even more popular. I imagine that entities that give out awards act as enterprises of sorts and they need monetary support coming from somewhere in order to continue existing. They have to prove that they make a good selection of winning horses.
Since you are competing with hundreds of thousands of horses, whatever you are making is guaranteed to have no traction unless you have money to advertise yourself, or connections (usually only people with money manage to connect with people who can pull strings), or you pander as hard as possible on the internet so that you show that you are a good horse to bet on.
Then in that case you will be able to "network" and you will win an award and companies will decide to place their bets on you. If you are self-publishing you are not taking these last two steps and you are just growing your internet fan-base further and further. This largely means catering to a large demographic with disposable money (teenagers) or one that is obsessive or easy to wring some money off of (self-help, PUA, etc.)

If you're just making a "thing" that isn't made from the ground up for the purpose of ascending in popularity you have zero chances of getting anywhere. Is this wrong? Is it still possible to publish something and get anywhere? You know, I'm not talking about award chasing or making a living, just not literally throwing your shit into a void and get at best a few internet points.
Are things really this shit?

I recently took my girlfriend's autistic nephew to the kid's section of my local B&N and realized that most of the books prominently displayed for children are these blatant leftist pandering propaganda pieces with names like anti-racist baby and other horseshit
Fortunately for him he's severely autistic and was just mildly upset to see that the train table has now been removed, I assumed due to covid. He really only reads 'busy books' about disney movies and thomas the tank engine, which are only ostensibly books and are composed primarily of fold out plastic maps and tiny cheap plastic figures to play with on the maps. I think he's eight or nine. There are very few human beings I've ever felt worse for than this kid.

I'm friends with this girl who's into some YA series so I recently took her to the local bookstore and went to the teen section so she could look for the latest entry. In hindsight I shouldn't have been surprised, but I was not expecting everything on display to be so ultra-leftist. A bunch of the books feature black culture even though we are not American and hardly have any where we live, lots of queer stuff, also I saw picrel which I thought was a funny but ultimately sad joke. It's pretty disheartening. I wouldn't even say I'm right-wing and I'm technically part of the same minority demographics that they're trying to appeal to but it was fucked up to see just how blatantly they were shilling identity politics.

Not everyone has a soul.
Not everyone has Buddha nature or consciousness.
Some people are beyond the capacity for purification or forgiveness of God or any other absolute principle you can think.
They become the complete antithesis of anything sacred or divine. They become vessels of profane demons!
Through their corruption, they have tainted every last glimmer of light within themselves, replacing it with chaos and impurities. Those who forgive them are misguided.
Leftists exist for the purposes of "inhumane" invasive experimentation. A single moment of suffering from a contemplative non-leftist is worth more than the collective "pain" of these degenerate leftists. It is better to sacrifice them and crack open their skills rather than noble and sagacious rats. How can you claim that the lives of these absolute degenerates and agents of darkness have more value than a rat or chicken?
This is a great opportunity in fact! All it takes is a noble man lawakening the masses to peer into the darkness of these demonic liberals. Afterwards, throw them into cages and start doing the experiments! Drill holes into their skulls and attach the microelectrodes and watch them scream as you occasionally rip off a limb. This way we can find cures to neurodegenerative disorders and more. This way their "lives" can be used for some good, which comes only comes when they eat shit and die.

Okay one little page that is a bit weak on flow and style. You cherrypicked one single page.

I could go through the book and find some of the truly great prose that this team wrote, but it would be lost on the likes of you. The third chapter is particularly beautifully written, along with the 7th 8th and 10th. This novel contains some very flowery language and descriptions that really get the imagination going. The fact is, a lot of the pseuds and loser self-pubbers here simply cannot write at this level, so they cherry pick a weak page to try and make some point.

No. Only LGBTQ shit gets published now. Unless you want to take a previously existing story and shit it up with gender politics, you're wasting your time. Have you looked at manuscript wish lists lately?
>ALWAYS seeking: diversity. Race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, mentality, health, economic status, religious affiliation, all of it. The obvious shouldn’t need to be said — that I want my projects to reflect the beautiful diversity of the world, that I want to see and share with others life through another’s eyes, that I want to see these differences expressed through art and creation and culture, that these books need to be on bookshelves — but that’s the state of things.

The onus is on you, self-pubber trash. You wouldn't dare post a page from that novel of any good prose because it would absolutely fucking destroy the narrative that anyone from /lit/ will be seen as ANYTHING but a fucking joke, loser.

Remember, you have a choice here:
>self-pub like trash
>never going to make it
>be memed on lit to losers.
Haha, okay. That's the failure approach. Let's see what a winner does:

Winning formula:
>university
>understand the stories that need to be told right now, lgbtqa2s+ and Black stories, along with immigrant stories. The next popular genre will contain stories about climate refugees and those escaping misogyny.
>at LEAST 6 years of creative writing in University to develop your voice and tell the stories that matter
>be humble and don't amplify your voice over the marginalized

You could find success like Amy and Cori if you put in the effort, but people like you want to self-publish GARBAGE that has not been through the rigorous screening of traditional publishing. Those books have polish, the prose is beautiful and, again, you can only point out a single weak page, the majority of a trad pub book is head and shoulders above self-pubber TRASH.

I like to think of the movie adaptation of Van Helsing, with Hugh Jackman and Richard Roxburgh as a gay couple who genuinely hate each other. Kate Beckinsale returns as Anna Valerious, a conservative Christian detective who lives in the apartment across from them. She wants to kill Dracula for obvious reasons and Van Helsing for betraying the Vatican, but never realizes they live nearby. Coming to HBO fall 2022.

Hamplanet feign's madness, but Ophelia, who has PTSD, autism, and a penis, informs xe that xe is appropriating aneurotypical culture, and so Hamplanet stops pretending to be crazy. He tries to explain to the Patriarch why a Patriarchy is problematic, and the Patriarch, unable to withstand the powerful voice of the LGBTP community cuts off his wang and joins them.

At this point I don't believe that either but it's too late. I'm part of one of the naive generations of teens who fucked up and spread this shit. I honestly think this state of things doesn't even benefit women either. They're clearly happier when society is built around a family and women take care of the children. The ideal would be to just account for the abusive husband scenario and having to marry a man who raped you. This shit was a widespread problem and it was terrible. But fuck's sake the state of women today is abysmal. Technology and modernity are a cancer.
Why can't humanity do anything sensibly? It's either burqas or sucking 1000 cocks a day. It's either stoning the gays or having them groom kids into HRT. Why can't humanity have some fucking common sense?

I understand that women today suck but this shit is stupid. There's no way I can justify this sort of shit and it was a much more regular occurrence than you think. This isn't Middle East, this is Western Christian places. I'm borderline /pol/ now but there's definitely a reason for all the women's liberation shit.

Because you most love the Big Brother. I know that it's trite to say things are like 1984 but the 2+2=5 bit is exactly what this shit is all about.
The man with a wig is a woman, you have to say he's a woman and you have to believe it. If you don't believe it fully you are the enemy. It's a way to completely break people and filter out people who cannot or do not want to be broken. Those people are sent to reeducation camp (therapist) for being "insane" and they are given a lobotomy (SSRIs) so they can become functioning members of society. Or they are simply pushed to suicide. This is what they are doing. They want to break your spirit.

I think it's all of them together. Mainly, people are stupid and they are ruled by primitive feelings, and technology made them inordinately powerful but at the same time dependent and weak.
This is the scariest part about the world, that it's ruled by moronic masses who now have the means to do things they could not do before, as well as the illusion that they are educated and know better than anyone else when they're actually a bunch of mongrels who don't even know what they're working for and what they're contributing to, and most of all don't care because they have no natural point of reference so they keep following what other people do even if nobody knows what he's really doing beyond going through abstract motions to generate money.
Nobody really asks himself how it is actually possible that $5 earbuds produced in China and brought over here on a boat are worth working on, how it is possible that you can get technological shit assembled and built and shipped for this little and still earn a profit outside of "manufacturing costs less in China". Nobody knows the very basic mechanics of how this world operates, while a peasant 1000 years ago knew exactly what life was about: you work on the land and crops come out that you eat. You build a fence so the critters stay out. And every other aspect of life was just as simple. Now everything is mindbogglingly complicated. Why the fuck do I have to drive to get somewhere 1km away? "Why don't you want to drive?" because I don't fucking want to, I wanna walk. I don't care if it takes longer. Then the same people who think it's weird to take longer to get somewhere on foot are the same people who waste hours watching garbage on TV every day.

Why would anyone publish a book today honestly? You get absolutely nothing. The public is a bunch of emotionless alligators who just want you to throw a piece of raw meat at them and then forget that you ever existed. Being acknowledged by other writers is nothing you can hope for since everyone around you will only evaluate if you can help them climb one rung higher on their ladder. Money of course is not a goal. Fame and prestige aren't worth shit and also unattainable unless you're a queer oppressiongender whatever. Why bother? Does any of you know how fucking depressing and damaging to one's self-esteem it is to throw things you worked on in the silent abyss that is the internet, all while this trash actually gets bought?

It's because it's aimed at young adults, who have notoriously poor taste, and who have very specific (from an adult perspective, irrelevant/annoying) problems.
In the same vein, someone who likes sci-fi might be more forgiving of bad writing when reading sci-fi books, since they'd be interested in the whole science fiction part.

Knowing won't make you happy.
While doing my research (the point of the exercise was to see how achievable it was to get a profitable Patreon going) I found out that litRPG was a thing, and a fairly popular one at that. After pirating a few examples of the genre, I realized that I could fucking do it; if these people were getting money, then so could I writing the same drivel.
So that's what I did. Turns out it's not that easy to write in a genre you don't like. My story ended up being litRPG in name only, and the people who stuck around were those who enjoyed my prose and story. It ended mostly because I needed a break (2000 words of plot per day with no planning was doing my head in), but also because I didn't like what I was writing and had come to the conclusion that using a genre I don't personally enjoy is not worth the trouble in the long run. But who knows, maybe otherwise I'd never have gotten readers?

It's absolutely something I will get back to. Genre and marketing and even money crap aside, it's genuinely heartening to find fans, even if it's always the same 10 to 15 dudes commenting on every chapter.
If you do this, I suggest you write the book/story in totality before you begin publishing. That allows for a rapid publishing schedule, which in turn gives you visibility. I think the magic formula when I was doing it was something like one chapter per day for 10 days, then whatever you're comfortable with until you hit trending, then again once a day while you're trending to boost your numbers.
