What I write is generally for school, so don't expect anything special. I intend on posting more in the future, and I would love any feedback people would be willing to give

There's only one up now, though, because I decided it'd be best if I metered out what I've already written so I don't run out before I can write more.

I could see that. I haven't read the book, but I know it's his Western.

I wrote this one, and few more that I'm going to post later, about two years back, and part of what I was trying to do was explore and unravel that sort of colonizing masculinity

If you were interested in the themes of colonizing and masculinity I'd definitely highly recommend Blood Meridian then... it's graphic but in a way that I feel really emphasizes the pointlessness of violence.

Oh, me too! I was strongly considering making a poetry sub for a while, and I think I may still do that just so that we have a place to post shiny poetry we find. I didn't know this was a subthefempire, though :oo

I enjoyed your poetry-werds <3

Thanks! Poetry-werds are some of the best werds. If you would make a subpire like that, either for poetry or writing in general, I'd be more than happy to contribute or even help mod, if you would like someone on that front

Wonderful! I'll look into making it a little later and then can bug everyone with a poetry-flood :3
