Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Word to yer mutter


Come to find out, I love generators. Not the kind that make electricity or bullshit, but online generators that make up new stuff with the click of a mouse. There are band name generators, Hemingway generators, haiku generators, and even a wonderful Bob Ross inspirational generator.

Today, via Boing Boing (source of so many beautiful things!), I found a “new word” generator. It comes up with a brand new word for each click, and, trust me, it’s a word you wish you could use. Like the one I just generated: parset. It could mean almost anything, but it’s a great Anglo-Saxon-sounding word that’s perfect for its crispness and sound. Here’s another one: mangero. That one sounds like some kind of exotic fruit, or a the fellow who milks female llamas in Argentina.

(I think the site might limit the number of words you can generate at one time, so don’t be greedy. Take two or three and savor them. Or park them in your binefere for later.)

    I think it would be humorous to insert one of these “generated” words into a story. It would have to be a strategic word in order to pull it off. Like “At last I came upon the mangero only to find the loathsome parset had already taken the idol.”

    I have never heard of this. I learn so much from everyone’s blogs! 🙂

      Say, did you ever get your copy of Town Father onto the Kindle successfully?
