At the last minute, I wanted to put together a novel with Tracery after all. This uses "The Journal of Albion Moonlight", a rather odd journal-style novel, for sentences structure, and then randomly picks words from for character names, descriptions, locations, etc.

This particular run of the generator script gave me a rather repetitive name for the main character, and I stuck with it.

The code makes journal entries through the months of May, June, July, and August, at which point is assumed that the character has lost track of all time, and is just counting the days.

We buried him beneath the piercing parlor, and on a piece of vicinity printed his name.

50005 words.

Sadly, I didn't get far enough in one night to implement the later interesting bits of The Journal of Albion Moonlight, in which the typography breaks down. There's also poems throughout. Both would've been fun to attempt.

This is awesome - reminds me of a game I used to play that had a 'sanity meter' that got weirder and weirder as that meter went up.
