And some do it satirically, like Mark Twain or William Thackery
Then it is a style I won't read.
You're missing out by not at least giving it a chance. Cormac is considered one of the best living American novelists for a reason. Others like Hubert Selby Junior are also highly acclaimed.
Believe me, I have.
Run-on sentence writing is the default of every hack.
Respectfully, I pass.
Mainly because I read for prose.
Bukowski, Hamsun, Burroughs is the money.
What does she write about, anyway?
I find it odd that you consider run-on sentences to be something only hacks use, then list Burroughs as someone you consider to be good. I like him, but his prose is more often than not complete gibberish. Cormac is a man by the way, he writes Southern Gothic.
I can see why people think that, considering Naked Lunch.
His first book, Junky, was way, way better.
Naked Lunch and The Soft Machine are the only books by him I have read. I might get around to Junky at some point, but not yet.
Back writing lads.
Up a couple thousand words in a couple of days.
Nice to have the format correct just looks so much nicer to read.
Can't believe I took so much time and had almost given up.
I may have been in the flatline for a few months now.
Could be one of the reasons for the lack of drive I have had.
Anyway no point staying in the past. Look forwards always.
225 pages edited. I think the last chapter I did is one of the best in the whole book. I know I was the one who wrote it lol, but holy shit, I dd a good job on the character monologues.
Flatline is a funny thing. Easy not to notice you are even experiencing it. I find that extreme urges and flatline both affect my ability to write. But nothing is worse than trying to the day after a relapse.
Thoughts on Henry James?
I have not read anything by him.
He's good, but some of his works, especially The Wings of a Dove, have so many run-on sentences that my inner editor was screaming in horror.
I get bummed about writing because most of the process
Then you read about Walter Gibson (creator of The Shadow, a pulp series) writing 10,000 words a day and 24 books a year, and realise you need to step up your game.
Seriously though, it depends on what part of the editing process I'm doing. I dont mind adding and subtracting content to make everything flow better, it's mind-numbing but satisfying.
I'm enjoying editing and reliving the story!
I'm slowly becoming more of an edit fan
Then certainly your writing will be a success.
