Hello! You have stumbled across our April Fool's joke from 2021. Hopefully, you will be relieved to discover that there (currently) isn't a way for authors to automatically generate novels!
While Silicon Valley thinks we'll see computer-generated books in our lifetime, for now, we should count ourselves lucky that human creativity still rules the roost.
Writing resources for human authors
If you are interested in writing a book the old-fashioned way, there's plenty you can do to give yourself a boost. As a starting point, here are some of our favorite free resources:
- Novel Writing 101. This free online course is written by author Ben Galley (a human, as far as we know);
- How to Master the 'Show, Don't Tell' Rule. Another free course, written by Reedsy's team of meat puppets;
- Story Structure: 7 Narrative Forms All Writer Should Know. Our new master post on the most common story structures that all non-silicon-based authors should know;
- Book Title Generator. While we don't have the tech to generate an entire novel, we do have a way to create random book titles based on your genre of choice — great for inspiration!
Happy April, everyone!
