So I just found out that an article I wrote has been accepted for publication in a collection of articles about literature during World War I. I've had a few smaller publications before but this is really the first time I've actually had to think about how to display my name in a more permanent way. Small journal articles, conference presentations and shit is one thing, but putting my name in a book that's going to be sitting in libraries feels kind of different. I'm not sure if it would be better to go middle last or to include my first name or initial. My first name is a little long and put all together with the rest of my name, it sounds kind of awkward. Even my first initial, an "S," doesn't really flow when put with the rest of the name, which makes me want to use just my middle but it may be important just to identify that I'm not going by my first name. I've asked around a little bit--I teach at a small liberal arts college--and most people have said to use my given name rather than my "nickname" but I want to be recognized and using some name I never go by would be strange. I used my full name before, but I'm still not totally on board with it and I used to use my full name on my CV but stopped when I kept getting called First Middle, like it was supposed to be some combined name like Billy Bob. So give me your opinions. F. Middle Last or Middle Last or First Middle Last Pic is how I feel thinking about this. I know it's stupid and the answer is probably obvious, but it feels like a big deal.

In the interest of wanting to first read the author's version of his own story before the American entertainment industry diligently went about ruining everything I ordered pic related off Amazon. Also known by the less retarded title: Edge of Tomorrow. What does /lit/ think about it?

I want to write, /lit/, but I have a problem. I often come up with good ideas for starting a novel (interesting characters and scenarios) but I struggle with knowing where to go from there. I have very vague ideas of where the plot should go, how the character needs to be challenged by the world, but I don't know how to do it. My most recent idea is about a social misfit and general piece of shit who isolates himself in a world of his own creation. Obviously, he needs to be challenged and brought out of his own world in order for there to be a story but how do I do that? How do I plot, /lit/?

Short story time!!! Right what you want dont matter ill start. I felt it in my body. It was there. I really wanted it out so I began to concentrate. I was sweating now. Both my hands clutching tight. I gave out a grunt, "Mauhn." I can do this. I know god is watching over me. Finally Im there. The throne. I sit down and with out hesitation. I drop my jeans and breifs and take my seat. My ass hole has no problem slipping out a nice solid turd that shined with light, sparkled at night and gave off the loveliest smell. My family was as proud as ever. I looked back at it and smiled as I cheered, "My Shit!, My shit boy." Years past and I had began to think my shit was brain dead. It never spoke or moved but yet I could feel the energy of life. Every night I would cuddle up with my shit. read it stories, keeping hope that one day he would grow up as a normal turd. Then my friend came up and told me, "Its poop not a child." Confused I quickly did some research and found out he was right. For I am a male and we only poop out our butts. Females poop and have babies out their butts. I was so happy I took my poop and threw it all over my friends baby. I laughed and said, "You're covered in shit."

Can anyone recommend me some really good reading on Nordic gods, especially Bragi? Most of the encyclopedias only have like 10 lines on him.

Reading through The Origin of the Work of Art. It's difficult but that's not particularly why I'm making this thread. I'm just wondering what's up with Heidegger and his conception of gods? I've read the Der Spiegel interview in which he makes the well-known "the gods have fled" remark but that doesn't really shed much light on it either.
