Feeling stuck, out of ideas, or simply wanting to draw some entertainment out of your next draft? Try a new creative writing technique with cut-ups. The cut-up technique has been used by writers, musicians, artists, and creatives for decades to brainstorm fresh and meaningful compositions out of the blue — conquering writer's block and having a bit of fun too. 

The cut-up technique involves taking your text, cutting it up into pieces, and then rearranging the pieces to create an entirely new text. It can be used in any kind of writing, from songwriting, creative writing, poems, lyrics, and beyond. The best part is that it forces you out of your comfort zone and helps you find inspiration, unique ideas, and helpful prompts in ways you've never thought about before.


Tap into texts from multiple sources. Import your own texts and writing directly into the app or import text from news articles, websites, or uploaded files. 

Take inspiration from the physical world around you. Scan text from handwritten writings, books, newspapers, magazines, and more with your camera to instantly import the words to the cut-ups app. 

Easily manage the writing process and let the words flow with organization tools right at your fingertips. Organize your texts into collections and efficiently keep track of all your work. 
Think outside the box and boost your creativity by cutting up your text to create something brand new. Generate new cut-ups while going back to previous cut-ups to mix-and-match random text fragments. Swipe through words to swap, replace, or save new ideas—the possibilities are truly endless!
