Anyone else writing a book or story?

If so, let’s create a writing collective or help each other out.

Thoughts?

I am, but I only wrote 2 paragraphs related to world-building

You are!

Thanks, we can work together, if you want. It’s totally fine. Sorry I wasn’t here last few weeks. I decided to take a break from things to focus on a personal project.

How can we write it out collectively? Like write a bit here and there and it saves for everyone?

I’m currently exploring that right now.

Nice, comrade. Let me know if you find anything, I’m very willing to contribute to this work

It’s a dream of mine to create a “communist writers” movement, but frankly, I don’t know if something will come of it.

All the same, I’m hopeful.

A movement would have to start somewhere nonetheless. In any case, whether it turns out to be a movement or not, I just wish I could write something with other comrades and perhaps sell it locally

Yes, I think we should try to start one, and I’m dead serious right now.

How would you like to work in a collective? There are some other comrades talking about this very thing.

Perhaps we can discuss this through a faster communication method? I’m up to the task of contributing to a project like this

Sorry I wasn’t here for a while.

Which do you prefer?

Discord?

Telegram?

Yeah, I accidentally deleted it when I was clearing my computer lol.

Let me re-install it and I’ll get back to you.

Google documents is pretty good for that, but it’s - of course - a google product so privacy isn’t an option with it. IDK of anything else that works the same way, other than Emailing or sending the work back and forth with revisions and background explanations on it.

There is hackmd. If you google it you can find instances hosting it. It’s decentralised like Lemmy is.

Another option is hosting a git repo on something like codeberg.org but requires you to know git.

Honestly, I don’t really care that much about privacy hehe

I keep trying to write things, then I lose the will to live and stop.

The only reason I haven’t finished GWIC (there’s a lemmygrad community for it, I pushed an inferior ‘first volume’ during the 2020 protests if you want to read a part of it) and published it is because everytime I sit down and try to finish, I get overcome with deep anxiety about it being ‘too late’ to publish, but also ‘too early’ for the revolution to be successful.

Then there’s the OC star wars story, and other fictions, where I start working on them, then I get nostalgic for my old writing group and get too sad to continue. I might push that one unfinished onto a fanfic site and forget about it.

Perhaps we can start our own writing collective? It’s time to move on, I feel. Let’s do it together sometime.

I’m open for it, but I don’t have a lotta time to dedicate to it rn.

Fair enough.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
