I have a new obession and it's name is Wordle. It's even on my favorites list.
What is it? You copy/paste a document at http://www.wordle.net/ and see the word montage it creates. The more the word appears in the document the bigger it is in the picture. Apparently I have a 'like' issue.
This picture is of a WIP. As a writer I see a lot of possiblities with the program. I am now aware I possibly use his name too much and I need to use a thesaurus for the word 'like'. It is also a good way to find a title. The word that pops out to me is HUNGER.
Let's try another one. I'll use Bait this time.
A fully editted book and the picture appears more balanced. There are many options, one being to not remove common words. Go check it out and have fun!
