You gotta know who you are

Okay, I can’t take full credit for this idea. While checking out J.M. Reep’s blog, which can also be found on my blogroll to your right (Juvenilia), I saw this great word cloud that he had generated from his novels. The folks over at Wordle have created a way for you to stylishly see the prominent words of any piece of text in a clever little cloud.

What have I learned? I say book to much. I always thought my focus was more on short stories and there we go with book and books in huge letters. Of course, I’m not helping matters right now by saying that over and over but you get the idea. Enough talking, check it out:


See ya next time. Same Bat-time, same Bat-station.

  1. That looks nice. One thing that I discovered about my texts, especially in the second example I posted, is that I use the word “just” too much. In fact, that might be a good use for Wordle: to check to see if there are any words you are using too often in your stories.

    Last night, I saw that CNN had a segment featuring Wordle and applying it to the transcript of Obama’s latest press conference. I searched for a link to the video this morning so I could post it here, but I’m afraid I can’t find it now.

  2. Very interesting. Love the artistic appeal of the word cloud. Look’s great as an artistic piece all its own. Ha, I would find art in a word cloud, wouldn’t I?
