Finally, you can become the stir-crazed writer you always wanted to be—without the commitment of spending a winter locked in an abandoned hotel. Psychotic Writer is a text generator that compiles and organizes the darling phrase, “All work and no play makes jack a dull boy,” from Kubrick’s horror masterpiece, The Shining, into a printable document that you can creep out your wife and son with.
