As I explained before, rather haphazardly, I will not post my actual work on this blog before its time. That means before it’s been published or produced or whatever. But I know that leaves a lot of you wondering, “Damn, is this guy actually writing something or not?” Yes, children, I am.
But I will prove it to you. Sorta. What I’ve decided to do is create a “wordle” each time I finish a chapter or scene or whatever. The above wordle is from the short story I’ve been working on since forever, The Drums. The two most prominent words, “Tati” and “Jacqueline,” are the manin characters’ names, obvs.
This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a wordle on my blog but it has been a while, so if you’re unfamiliar: “Wordle is a toy for generating ‘word clouds’ from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.”
Wordles are fun and easy to create. Just visit the site at www.wordle.net, enter some text, hit “BLAMMO!” and you’re done. (Okay, I don’t think the button actually says “BLAMMO!” but wouldn’t it be cool if it did?)
Stay tuned, Dear Readers, more wordles to come … which means more writing will be getting done! 🙂
