Who else takes the radical philosophical view that literature is an arm of the entertainment industry? And that the writer has a responsibility to give me FUN?

I've read too much self indulgent shit. No more lads. No more. And no, this doesn't mean reading sci fi or fantasy shit. I am entertained by a lot of respected books.

Picrelated isn't that entertaining but is passable.

Today anyone anytime can write something. Being an author, a writer, never been so easy like today, so it is more than common to be in contact with a lot of contemporary trash.

what do you consider self indulgent writing to be?
>>
All books are mental masturbation, including non-fiction.

What it comes down to is can you consider mental challenges "fun"

Is masturbation fun?

>>7621791

The novel has never been anything other than a specific entertainment. Opinions to the contrary may flail, to the effect that "a novel has been historically important", without realizing the reasons why.

do i need to state the obvious cliche that fun isn't the same for everyone? there is a hierarchy of pleasures from the most refined and inacessible down to the most vulgar and common.
>>
a writer's responsibility lies with the writer's intention

fun as tool or fun as an end
