Thread: What are you reading now?

    Still haven't finished earthsea, will continue it but decided to post this. I will read it when it arrives. It uses no linguistics jargon and I saw good reviews and comments about the book on amazon. The non-fiction thread it is not active and I decided to post it here. Ordered both of the books yesterday.

    Writing Good Prose: A Simple Structural Approach (Paperback)

    by Alexander E. Jones, Claude Winston Faulkner


    Writing Good Sentences, Revised Edition (3rd Edition)
    Faulkner, Claude W. (saw the preview of this second book, the 1st book is by the same author so I hope the other book tells me how to organize my paragraph's sentences) It has some good comments left by reviewers on amazon. The author has the same last name by that famous writer.
    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.
    The most difficult thing for a writer to comprehend is to experience silence, so speak up. (quoted from a member)

    For my dissertation, I'm reading a selection of texts from the Danson Erotica Collection housed in Trinity College, Oxford. Some of them are pornographic, some of them aren't. Some of them aren't and feel they have to say they aren't pornographic at the start to ward away the wrong sorts of readers. All sorts of old stuff (1700-1900, lots of texts past 1900 too but I'm not including those in the scope of my study) with all sorts of old ideas and mannerisms towards obscenity, eroticism, sex, drugs, rock n roll...

    There's also an entirely smutless 'Dictionary of Love' in there, written by the same guy who penned the first pornographic novel (and was promptly arrested for doing so).

    I'm almost at the end of Jeremy Page's " The Collector of Lost Things ".
    It hasn't been a bad read, a bit of a page-turner in places, and I shall be interested to see how he wraps this thing up.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    In 2014 I bought The Complete Poems of Phillip Larkin. Still pushing through it. I find I like lines, rather than entire poems, with the exception of Aubade. I find myself wanting to workshop them. No shit. Too late. He's dead.
