In my search for inspiration, I tried looking at random words in my dictionary (the brilliant Wordweb Pro lets you search for random words). But it occurred to me that there must be a way to do this for multiple words and, since I don’t have the programming skills to do this myself, I went looking for apps and I found two.
The first was the amusingly named Liptikl from Intermorphic. This software is chiefly designed for song writers but it also stimulates the brains of blocked fiction-writers. It has three boxes in which text can be placed and it scrambles the words from those boxes and churns out nice poetry-sized chunks of words. You can set the line lengths to get the right feel. It is quite delightful.
The next app was Amusement. This churns words from its own database, but you can specify the frequency of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, interjections, pronouns and articles. Great fun.
Like all good software, these apps are a pleasure to use and quite entertaining. Good luck with throwing your word-dice!
