I heard about this last year, but I was too late to participate. I promised myself that I would do it this year, so here I am. I have a lot of ideas, so I'll probably create a few novels.

First novel done! You can see the output HERE and the source code HERE.

Basically it randomly generates a simple, eight-word sentence, and then it randomly chooses a random word from it to define. It includes the definition of that word within the text, and continues defining things (even words from definitions) until there are at least 50,000 words in the novel.
