is alt lit all rough and no diamond?
meow koh makes a nice point. alt lit is full of output without a lot of substantiation. it is a movement and it is an idea and it is a method and blah-blah-blah; but it also produces a lot of things that are grazed but never savoured.
does alt lit have too much QUICKSHIT?
what is QUICKSHIT?
QS is writing that was made quickly, that involved very little thought. it is writing written ‘as if writing were akin to publishing an amateur blog’ or as if ‘writing is still the same as when you were in gradeschool and ideas magically sprang out of you that you thought were good but were actuallyshit because you were in fucking gradeschool’
it’s lazy ass writing.
are you a QICKSHITTER?
ARE U A
alt lit def. contains a high amount of QS the problem is: what stuff is QS and what stuff isn’t?
SOME OF IT MUST BE BECAUSE IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER MOST OF IT
someone said something on htmlgiant like: a lot of alt lit writers are indebted and in some way riffing off of tao lin’s work… and lin’s writing is complex but seemingly simple. people are making simple writing that isn’t so complex.
is this is causing a deluge of QUICKSHIT to pour out??
who are the L▲ZY-LIT ▲L†s? who is actually ‘workin it’?
