The Making of Project Haikuza: Part 2

The format of this series is an outline of my thought process during the development of @thehaikuza. Poetry is hard To write when algorithms Are extremely dumb. I dont want my haiku generator to be a vegetarian chef. There’s nothing wrong with always making word salad, but eventually it’ll have to learn to make fancier things. A poetic risotto would be nice from time to time. Leaving @thehaikuza to make complete gibberish wasnt what I had intended.

The format of this series is an outline of my thought process during the development of @thehaikuza. Haikus are simple Even children can write them maybe programs too? Nothing is cooler than algorithmic poetry. Except for maybe Carl Sagan. I heard he was a pretty cool guy. I was listening to the radio while driving home one Sunday evening, and an ad came up for a university that was submitting computer-generated poetry to a literature competition.
