Even More Ultraviolent Homer (aka Homeric Violence script) #62
This is a very simple script that parses Leconte de Lisle's French translation of Homer's Iliad (1866) and keeps only sentences with the string "frapp" (that means hit/hurt). Also, the order is reversed.
Here is the generated novel :

Okay coding is still such a struggle for me so I did the script in Construct 2
Just wanted to translate a sample into English to give non French speaker an idea of the whole thing.
"And haired Achaeans were shooting at him and beating him with arrows and stones. He spoke, and he struck him with the scepter, on the back and the soulders. He struck the mules first and fast dogs, but then he pierced the men themselves with the line that kills."
I only just today clicked the link to find out how you coded this.
A most original choice of development environment.
One upon a time, I happened upon the project-page of somebody that was converting the original PacMan board to run as an OS. No longer seems to be online. But only something of that nature could be weirder for NaNoGenMo.
(I consider esoteric programming languages to be more traditional than something aimed at non-programmers, for this purpose. Although a text-generator in Piet would be something to behold.)
Well I have to say, for normal humans like me (with no knowledge of code) Construct 2 sounds like the sensible way of doing things, like you know, I click&drag an object and I tell him to do this and this.
