Fun with Word Clouds
Inspired by this post http://hoperoberson.blogspot.com/2012/02/six-little-words.html I headed to Wordle and pasted in my experimental fiction assigment from last semester.The blogger, Hope Roberson, does warn that word clouds are addictive...
It's a psychomonologue narrated by a woman whose life revolves around her anxiety and her boyfriend. I'm surprised by how 'normal' the word cloud looks: nothing shouts out 'experiemntal'. I suppose the sheer size of 'Luke' does hint at the narrator's obsession.
It's strange to see my story summarised like this - and strangely compelling. Might be an intriguing way to submit writing... Also a handy visual to spot over-used words. Most of all, though, it's fun!
