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.

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.

    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.

    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
