Ok I just started writing a Novel about a NEET who never leaves his room. How do I progress?
>>
You end it at that.
>>
>>26276730
write two words, quit, play video games.

Gotta get a feel for your character.
>>
>>26276745
This.

Market it as a reaction and review of modern society. Hand print a hundred copies and sell them in a single room showroom on a wednesday night.
>>
Already done by Georges Perec in 1967.

You can watch the movie if you want.

everybody go home

>implying you're not already there

You should actually start it off as a very successful guy, right? Everything should be great, the most ideal life, but during chapter transitions, give hint that it's actually him dreaming. At the very end it should have him staring at the ceiling after waking up.
>>
>>26276921
By hints given, I meant that he can't read the time and gets ribbed for it, he never reads anything that's placed in front of him, random people "appear" or transform in the middle of everything, sudden changes of scenery, etc.
>>
>>26276730
it will never be interesting. give up.
>>
This is like the Seinfeld in written form - a book about nothing

Write about waking up and jacking off to MILF porn, then playing 3 games of Dota 2 before going to Subway to pick up a footlong BMT. Maybe he decides to splurge and get a combo, cookies instead of chips of course.
>>
>>26276730
Make him completly sperg out whenever he leaves his house and give him a pet rat/cockroach named Gerald
>>
Sounds like a interesting book anon, please let me know when it's finished so I can purchase a copy for myself !
>>
He begins have psychotic episodes where a character on a poster on the wall talks to and interacts with him. He find out being crazy is the best feeling in the world.

>>
>>26276730
Write literally the same things over and over across the days, but with different words.
>>
REEEEEE for 300 pages

The best advice for any writer is to write what you know.
>>
Yes I'm doing something similar!!

My idea is basically a screenplay about my life now and how it could turn out if i was a bit different.

>guy works nights at supermarket
>gets influenced by some entity to commit murders and stuff at night
>may just be him being crazy its ambiguous

Doesn't sound so great but i have ideas for the whole feel and tone and the shots in my head. Kinda like taxi driver crossed with donnie darko ish
>>
>>26278519
Actually sounds interesting. Cronenbergish
>>
>>26280115
Stealing this idea anon, thank you :^)

>protag playing wii u at night
>all of a sudden the stuffed teddy tells him to go kill the neighbors wife
>chapter detailing him doing it
>couple chapters of ordinary NEET life
>another inanimate object tells protag to kill someone else
>repeat
