188 Novels Generated by Computers in NaNoGenMo Contest - GalleyCat

Panzer made a quick trip in the Panzermobile today. As soon as our big brave kitty got into the Catosphere he heard all kinds of laughing and hooting. Following the noise took him to the GalleyCAT site.

Panzer found a post by Dianna Dilworth about the silliest ccontest our kitty pilot has ever read about.  While the contest called NaNoGenMo (National Novel Generation Month) runs at the same time (November) as NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), it has absolutely nothing to do with NaNoWriMo. Even though contestants in NaNoGenMo have to write a 50,000 word novel, the novel generated by the computer can be 50,000 words of gibberish that make no sense.
Meow?  Meow? They stole my words.

Panzer says, "A 50,000 word novel by a computer? Patoohee. I've got better things to read ... Like Mom's grocery list."

Note: A cup of cocoa is all you need for today's reading.
