"not sent or guided in a particular direction"

Often, the hardest thing for me when beginning a drawing is figuring out just what the hell to draw.  This morning, I devised a plan to defeat this enemy from the realm of endless possibility.

From now on, whenever I can't decide what I should make, I'm going to go here, a random number generator, find a number between 1 and 948, find the corresponding page in my dictionary, locate the first noun on that page, and then Google search images using that word.  The first image I like, I'll use as the basis for a drawing.

Yes, another way for me to shirk responsibility.  Algorithms will decide my artistic fate.  May the Gods of Mathematics have mercy on us all.
