Write Like

After much planning and many false starts, the first, highly experimental prototype of Write Like Shakespeare is now available. Leave comments here with the writings you create and suggested enhancements. Poems that were obviously not created using this tool will not be posted. Development will continue until Prospero's grand vision is entirely built out.

  2. For if the Sun goes down

    and you… Me will never forgot…

    • I don’t know Sophie – depends on the story.

      Why don’t you play around with Write Like Shakespeare and see what you come up with?

    • “jock”? I think you just wrote this from memory – and didn’t actually use Write Like Shakespeare.

      Here’s the Folio text from Romeo and Juliet:

      looke Loue what enuious streakes
      Do lace the seuering Cloudes in yonder East:
      Nights Candles are burnt out, and Iocond day
      Stands tipto on the mistie Mountaines tops

      “Iocond” is an alternate spelling of “jocund.”

    • Ah yes – Shakespeare spells that word “houre-glasse.” Sorry – I guess I must make the word list searchable, and get to work modernizing the spelling too.

      You’ll probably want to use the Write Like Shakespeare utility to create your own personal message – but as an example of what you could do with it, I came up with this pretty fast:

      houre-glasse runne, and be witnesse of my loue

      Or this:

      houre-glasse runne,
      We are like two Artificiall gods, but thou art perfect in the instant

      You can always combine and change things a bit after you generate them:

      Hourglass run, and be witness of our love.
      We are like two artificial gods, but thou art perfect
      In the instant.
