This is Phiction Phreak.

Phiction Phreak is an awesome database combined with a GUI that runs on both Windows and OS X. With a database of over 30,000 phrases to choose from, it is quite possibly the best writing tool since WordPad.

You can use Phiction Phreak to rapidly develop short stories or entire novels. Anything you write with Phiction Phreak is yours to keep with no attached licenses. It is intended to be used as a "ghost writer", so no mention of it has to be made when publishing the final version of your work.

Phiction Phreak can help you find your words without a complex interface. Quickly browse its database of the most frequently used words and you will never be at a loss for what to write. Input anything into the search box, and search for any word on the screen with a single click.

Screen Shot



Phiction Phreak was created because I wanted to write a novel and thought the best way to start would be to read everything I could get my hands on. I saved little pieces of what I read and over time they became a database.

If you don't feel comfortable compiling the source code then you can download Windows and Mac binaries (here) and install it into any directory.
