Try the Cut-Up Machine: NaNoWriMo Tip #22

Does your prose feeling boring and repetitive? Try the cut-up machine to create some crazy new writing.

Simply visit the Cut-Up Machine at the Language Is Virus blog and feed it some text. It can be a boring passage you wrote or a page from your favorite out-of-copyright book. The mixed up text may inspire you with some unexpected images and phrases.

Check it out: “This is a cut-up machine working along similar principles to those used by William S. Burroughs in his own work. Basically it works along similar principles to photo-montage, create an new image of words out of whatever was put in. Type or copy & paste some text into the areas below and click on ‘Cut It Up.’”

This is our 22nd NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project. (Link via Word Inventor)
