Wordles for my novels!

I made some Wordles. Actually, I did this before, but I didn’t save them. Click to see a larger version – you’ll be sent to the main site. It’s an application that transforms a large chunk of text (in this case, a novel) into a cluster of the most common words. Larger words appear more often in the text. You can then play with the layout to some extent, mainly the orientation of the words, the overall shape of the cloud, and the colors.

    That's really kinda cool. How big are they because I'm thinking that's an awesome thing to print on photo-quality paper and frame and hang on a wall in your office.

  2. Victoria Janssen says:

    Ooh! There's an idea!

    I do wish it was a little easier to manipulate them – the program can eliminate common words like "and" and "the," but I wish I could cut out possessive versions of names and other almost-duplicates, too. I guess I'd have to modify the data I enter in the first place.

    You can click on a word and have it removed from the Wordle; this changes the proportions of the remaining words. See mine? http://www.wordle.net/gallery?username=Amber%20Green
