This is how to write a book with a hat, 26 letters, a dictionary, a pen/pencil/marker, and piece of paper. Write each letter on a piece of paper, evenly on a respectable grid. and then cut it up into pieces with one letter on each piece. If you really liked a noise like oi and oy, you can make these letter sets as individual peices of paper with both letters on them to give you a higher chance to pull the noise you like. Then you put the cut up pieces of paper inside of the hat.

You pick a letter from the hat, this letter is the start of your word, you then pick another letter, if these two letters don’t start a word in the dictionary, then you put back one of the letters, you put back the recently drawn one, then you draw again. When this makes a word, in the order that you picked it, you can use it, or you can look at the dictionary after having more than 2 or 3 letters, you can always keep your front letters, and part of the letters you have picked, when you draw again for another word, things like a littler literal liter of titilating  litter belittling alittierative alliteration. If you use a computer to do this, your computer may not have the ability to suggest a word it does not know in it’s dictionary, where as playing by hand, you can always make up a word, while still being bound by the dictionary one has, or any internet dictionary “look for an alphabetical online dictionary where you can browse by the starting letters of a word.” If you keep the just end of a word, look in a rhyming dictionary, or make something up. A player can give up on the word if it is broken, and there was no word possible that was grammatically correct. If you don’t know grammar, that’s ok, there’s always poetry.

If you had a computer just suggest words, you would not know what some of these mean, you may want to have a dictionary program or file open. If you have a dictionary file, such as text, you can press  control+F to find a word starting with one’s letters: scroll down to where the starting letter starts, and then type in the starting sequence of the letters you have. If you have an ending, and you wanted to rhyme, you can drop one letter at a time and still attempt to rhyme, if you wanted to break it down in time, you could flip a coin for a rhythm, this was a way you say things    take it down to roll a dice and say i got one letter thats how many syllables of subliminal double L  illiterally viscerally vile viceloyalty interminably indeterminably terribiltibibliophilisencillophilosophosophiscticationalitationaliteralitelerelativisticaltiy really


this was ok, because you can take free writing at no cost, if you write it yourself. If you make a word you like by this, expanding on it through typing could be easier than picking another word.  The second line, you can take a lot of parts of words largely beginnings, and throw a few nice endings on there to make a nice word, people throw those prefixes around all day. This is just something you can do if you’re bored.

when you do this, you can have buy a common word like a pronoun, or preposition for 1/2/3 words, you can save a pronoun or other common word if you could use one, but you don’t.

This style of writing can be a contest, strokes to par, on each line. If you can guess the word, you don’t pay a stroke for pulling a letter out of the hat. You can only lose your first letter for free if you’re rhyming, you can hold up to 2/4 letter lanes. When you drop a letter for the rhyme, the new word must be a direct rhyme. It counts as 2/4 strokes to drop a word.


If you want to learn a new word, you can do this.



This is page has a similar layout to an alphabetically sorted dictionary, sorted by the starting letters.

  1. If you wanted a rhythm, you could select the number of syllables in a line, and the number of lines in a stanza. You could pick intermittent word lengths and internal rhyme if you wanted, but just picking a number of syllables that it will give or take amount to in a line would give it a sort of meter like poetry. There is notation for poetry, but that would be another dictionary all together, and that would seem to be dialectal. You can change the number of syllables per line or stanza, there are other literary terms that are not rhyming, some would be more difficult to roll than others, allusion.
