Title: Looking for help / feedback on a thing I did
Post by: LHX on January 24, 2013, 05:34:34 pm
Peace Fams -

Back in the day (like '05 or '06) between here and one of the other Discordian boards that I think doesn't exist anymore, I had crafted some stories of a particular style that was very much informed by a lot of the stuff that y'all had put on my mind -

Over time I have aggregated a bunch of these stories and recently have found time to put them all together.

Only issue is, I don't know if they are shit or not, and beyond that, I don't know what to do with them beyond let them exist.

Writing is not my profession by any stretch, but I wouldn't mind playing around with ways to put these out for people to check -

They can be found here: http://reale.ca/true-stories-of-things-that-happened/ (http://reale.ca/true-stories-of-things-that-happened/)

I am hoping that people at least find them to some degree interesting or entertaining and ultimately not a waste of time -

Please let me know if you have any thoughts / feedback / suggestions -

Any insights are monumentally appreciated x 1000000000000000

Peace

Ok, I just read the first one, and I'm hooked.  When I've gotten further in, I'll try to give more specific feedback.  But for now, awesome.

haha

cool -

there are about 4 or 5 of them that were originally posted in this forum in some iteration, so if anybody has a brain that stretches back to 6 year old forum posts, you might recognize something -

also: i have already received a dose of negative feedback from folks that weren't feelin them, so don't be hesitant to let me know if they suck -

Peace -

Hey!

I sampled a couple of these and I really like them. I'm not sure if it's a useful or even accurate comparison, but it put me in mind of Brautigan's "Troutfishing in America". Short, odd pieces with a poignant twist. I say, keep at it!

I've read several of these, and I love them!

It's hard to put my finger on exactly what it is that I love, but I do. I think I love that I am left searching for a point, a parable, and certain that there is one.

So far, I'm seeing these as "Snapshots of Helplessness".

ha thanks yo -

if anybody has any suggestions of things to do with them, let me know -

so far the most use i have had with them is running some JavaScript algorithms to figure out the most frequently used words

thanks again -

Peace
