One simple and seemingly effective way to generate a story that absolutely works (at least to some extent) is to use “rules” to select elements from groups or lists and assemble the parts into a story.
The idea is pretty simple actually, if you select or write good rules then the result is they would generate unique (enough) sentences that when combined are a story.
For example, lets say I create a generative “rule” like this:
Rule: proximity location, event. Seems simple enough but this rule can actually generate quite a few mildly interesting sentences, like this one for example:
in a railroad station, aliens attacked. Result: (proximity: in) (location: a railroad station), (event: aliens attacked).
Not bad huh? Keep Reading at my Blog
