Love the humor in this book and it’s a great way to take a break from reading something much more advanced. Definitely the entire series is my go too comfy book. Don’t care if you think this is a midwit book series, Douglas Adams prose is both clever and engaging. Bite me.

I think it's one of the funniest shit ever written.

Will I get banned from /lit/ if I read pic related and enjoy it?

Started reading this series after not reading for a longtime, keep running into word in this series I've never seen before.

Am I fucking retarded or does Douglas Adams use a lot of odd words?

>mfw reading my own writing
who else on /suicidewatch/ regarding their own prospects as a writer? I spent so much time and energy convincing myself that I had what it takes, constructing a whole identity around the pursuit of literary achievement. I read books, many I did not particularly enjoy, hoping they would impart some unconscious process to me that would improve my skills like one would catch a virus. I wrote daily and truth be told I never improved, it was always the same and it forced me to admit that I am not actually all that creative and have nothing of any merit worth saying. I admit I am not meant to be a writer and it is time to move on. I suck. I don't know what to do next, I construct a big shallow identity around this bullshit and now I am no one again, maybe I always was.
