For once, I won’t be sitting in front of this computer screen most of the day, so I’m going to give you a little something to play with while I’m gone.
Do you ever worry that you overuse certain words in your writing? Well, on Twitter this morning I saw a link to this cool little online program called Wordle. Even better, it’s free to use. You can paste text and Wordle will create a “word cloud” and the frequency of use determines the size of the word. For example, paste a chapter of your work in the Wordle, create the cloud, and if you use the word seem 72 times in the chapter and love 12 times, when your cloud appears, seem will be in much larger font than love in the cloud. Have fun and maybe improve your writing, too! Go to the Wordle site.
