For our NaNoGenMo project, I created a novel that combines Grimm’s Fairy Tales and John Locke’s Second Treatise on Government. I chose these texts from Project Gutenberg because I am familiar with both of them from history classes, and I thought combining them would create an interesting output with the vastly different themes, people/characters and vocabulary. I used the Markov method in Python, which combines the sound and style of each author (code: https://github.com/oprice01/DGST301-myprojects/blob/master/NaNoGenMo). My novel is 2,000 sentences long, with 59,369 characters. I am happy with the output, some of the sentences are pretty funny and interesting to read. Here are a few:
