In this paper we describe a method for generating a procedural text given its flow graph representation. Our main idea is to automatically collect sen- tence skeletons from real texts by re- placing the important word sequences with their type labels to form a skeleton pool. The experimental results showed that our method is feasible and has a potential to generate natural sentences.
