That's fine!

From The Official NaNoGenMo Rulebook:

The "novel" is defined however you want. It could be 50,000 repetitions of the word "meow". It could literally grab a random novel from Project Gutenberg. It doesn't matter, as long as it's 50k+ words.

This is officially awesome.

The most interesting problem with generating a 50K+ word book has, to me, always been about balancing something that has a coherent idea across the entire work versus something that works from moment to moment. Using the Voynich manuscript lets you bypass local coherency and jump straight to the entire work. It's difficult to say if it makes any more or less sense than the original, sidestepping the problem completely.
