    I'm sure if you jerk off some more others will start appreciating you and clap.
    But seriously, nobody cares about your "self-expression" whatever that means.
    You either have something interesting to say or you don't. Sounds like you don't, so stfu.

    Developing your own voice should be the least of your concerns. The main concern when addressing an audience is that to invoke resonance within them. So you don't really matter to the reader. At least until you've given them reason to care.

      audience? the audience appears to be a trap. chasing after them would lose me my voice. i think you've misunderstood me, my voice is clearly excellent since no one wants to hear it.

        Oh I see, we're going for the pretentious route. Well go on, don't let me stop you

          what's pretentious about abandoning the audience? or do you mean to say my sense of respect for my own voice is pretentious? that's a little strange, being confident in my voice and distrustful of the public doesn't seem pretentious at all. who would i be deceiving? myself? surely i know my own voice.

            "I spent years developing my own voice, and no one wants to hear it"
            Observation
            "Must be excellent"
            Conclusion.

            To draw this conclusion from the observation isn't based on any deductive reasoning but is rather a ad hoc way of stroking your own ego. I'd say it's pretentious. Being confident isn't in itself an issue, but it's a matter of gauging whether it's misplaced confidence or not.

            if you gauge success by how far from the world you can push it, then it makes perfect sense.
            we just operate on different assumptions.

            Well if abstaining from the norm is a marker of success in itself I think you'll just fumble around in the dark for eternity. Because what even is the aim of using your voice? It just seems that you've settled on "to use it differently than others" but to what end? I think this fallacy of uniqueness is quite dull. No one really is that special, and more importantly no one cares. But if you want to be the most unique man that ever lived, go for it. Seems like a lonely existence with very little to be gained.

            it's not unique to resist the world. the purpose for my voice is to speak to someone in particular, so i suppose you could consider them an audience, but relegating them to that role is rather silly.
            in any case, i don't chase originality either, and i am not alone. as to groping in the darkness, it's not dark in here.

            So what you are saying is that you want have a specific audience in mind for your work but your ego is disallowing you from referring to them as such. You aren't original and you aren't alone. I just don't grasp what you are getting out and I am doubtful that you do yourself.

            it's not my ego, but fear that restricts me from calling this figure "an audience". i understand that it's confusing for you, but you've come to this with a great deal of confusion in your heart.

            Well you know it was fun wasting time. But now I will return to my work. My confusion only arises out of your faulty communication. But I'll concede that maybe you've just transcended and your voice is just too refined for me to comprehend.

    You are stupid enough to have bought into the memes. Nobody, not even literary critics, genuinely cares whether you have a distinctive voice or not.
    It's just that literary critics are low IQ people and cannot understand why they dislike the book that they've just read, so they remember a part of something you wrote that sounded like something else they've read before and say you don't have a distinctive voice. It's the same as talking about the mojo, the x-factor or whatever other nonsense these npcs come up with on a regular basis.

      you appear to be more concerned with the opinions of critics than i. garnering adoration is very easy. having something no one is willing to hear, able to hear, that's special.

    This used to be a common thing in the history of art and there would some justification in counting on posterity, but I wonder if we have reached a point in history where this notion of posterity is dissolving before our eyes

      i see your angle, no, i'm not waiting for some future audience. there is none, and i agree, that endeavor is a bit sad. someone will eventually be reliant on some machine to be their audience, to appreciate their work in fullness. it won't be human appreciation that will be sought. though, one wonders what the reaction to the ersatz age will be, new sincerity seems like a valid manifestation of that counterculture.
      in any case, i'm not waiting for some future audience.

    >IQfy is for the discussion of literature, specifically books (fiction & non-fiction), short stories, poetry, creative writing, etc. If you want to discuss history, religion, or the humanities, go to IQfy. If you want to discuss politics, go to /misc/. Philosophical discussion can go on either IQfy or IQfy, but those discussions of philosophy that take place on IQfy should be based around specific philosophical works to which posters can refer.

    Stop being a mopey gay, just look at what people are obssessing about on the internet and write about it. You could make an interesting book about undersea horror, or some stupid about backrooms, most book horror is dogshit so you could improve it
