haven't read a book in a long time
used to read (hundreds?) i'd read a lot in highschool
been thinking of getting into LNs
Frankly I want to look into graphic novels. Anything illustrated while remaining text focused enhances the reading.
I just want to correct this and say light novels. Still graphical, but with more text focus.
wanna try reading one together?
not sure what the best method of sorting through all the trash is, either
>Frankly I want to look into graphic novels.>wanna try reading one together?
Read Batman and Harley, then read NEXTWAVE. They gud
pick different ones im not gonna read those
sorry i dont read capeshit also didn't realize you meant graphic novels i wanna read a LN
the next post he made corrected himself to mean LN and i just forgot it by the time i made that post responding to the other ugy recommending cape shit
ok i'll restart
i think OP wants to read a LN
i also want to break into the LN world
wanna read an LN together?
yes lets start with batman and harley
that's not even a graphic novel
correct its a light novel
you said you wanted to read graphic novels?
no thanks not interested then
ok so you weren't interested then, how about now?
I meant the other definition of "then"
Short stories are also pretty cool.
let's write short stories together
Why? They gud>>695
Gib example of light novels
spice and wolf is an LN
I don't wanna read that it looks like some gay anime shit
this thread is amazing
how bout the girls last tour manga?
anime was pretty fucking good
that's a manga not a light novel
ya but it IS writing related, and OP says "Discuss writing: Fanfiction, original works, screenwriting, anything writing."
no I thought we were reading NEXTWAVE not anigay shit
what happened to reading batman and harley??
sure we can read that first
I don't want to read capeshit
I like how one guy at the top talked about reading books in school, and now the entire thread is about reading LNs and Graphic Novels and manga. This was supposed to be a writing thread, right?
Is anyone here working on a writing project? Personally I have an idea for a manga series about three girls who start a band, basically just K-On except the focus is actually on the music and not eating cake. The only problem is I have zero artistic ability and haven't written anything of such a scale before.
>>764>Is anyone here working on a writing project?
uhh i've been writing technical reports for work
does that count?
sounds like a fun idea. i used to be way more into kind of winging manga projects, but recently i've been wanting to get into writing manga one shots. like nice, consolidated 30-50 page stories that can let me practice the medium a little more.
if you're looking for a way to get started, i think the best tip i can ever give is to accept that the first few times will be shit, but you have to keep on going. figure out if you want merticulously planned panels, or to just make them up as you go. if you want a huge overarching plot in the back, or just to manically work on a certain number of panels/pages a day. starting is always hard, and continuing doesn't get much better, but looking back will always feel good.
i write buffy + spike fanfic
I've got a whole series that I've worked on since childhood. Some of you have probably read my description of it on /monster/ back on 8chan
Basically: it's about the far future where mankind is in a feudal society fighting each other for domination so they can decide who becomes Terran Emperor, and the main lord who can become Emperor is a young lad with a harem of genetically modified women, and then there's also this mercenary corps of hard ass motherfuckers that fight bandits, feudal armies and space barbarians and shit. Then there's magic which is basically about being schizo enough to alter reality through changing perceptions and illusions. There's also monster girls, Venus flytrap ayys, and God's entropy dream demons.
Anyone else have fixations that they research and write about endlessly, but have no one to share it with? A year or so ago I was very interested in a niche topic, and decided to research as much as I could into it. I would be going on archive.org and other websites finding as many resources as I could about what I was interested in, and cataloged a lot, but didn't know what to do with it exactly. I've considered writing a book, or making a wiki dedicated to it, but I'm not sure yet.
