My book is based off of 14 novels & autobiographies written by female authors of 19th century United States.

It's just based off of a simple trigram model, then random text is generated into paragraphs of random length. I decided to leave chapter headings in my model so that I could have random chapters in the book. The only hand tweaking I did was turning any instance of "Chapter..." into a header.

Blog post: coming soon!

My favorite thing about using texts from the 19th century was that sometimes you can't tell if the generated text is hard to read because it's generated and doesn't make much sense or because it sounds so old-timey:

I have said of human life when I saw the Ohio river, that you shall work.
Still, falsehood may be hearing you. She only 'spects something. Them curls may make a noise you shall not.

This was my first NaNoGenMo! It was super fun!
