Isla’s Inheritance word cloudPosted: March 24, 2014 Filed under: On the Isla's Inheritance trilogy | Tags: Isla's Inheritance 6 Comments
Something fun from me today. I was
stalking getting a link from Tess Grant‘s blog for her spot on This Writer’s Space in a couple of weeks, and I saw her post about an awesome word cloud app called Wordle. You paste in a selection of text and it ignores the common English (or other langauge) words and gives you a word cloud of the rest.
The results weren’t perfect – it didn’t seem to acknowledge the apostrophes as part of a word so there were a handful of fragments — such as “don” and “ll”. Once I removed those, I really liked the result.
Can you tell that Dominic features pretty heavily in that chapter? 😉
I’d love to see these results for other novels. If you do it, link me your blog in the comments so I can check it out!
how did you save yours, I’ve only got Public GALLERY as an option?
I used the Windows snipping tool. Taking a screenshot would work just as well. 🙂
That is so cool! Nice idea, Cass
I want to see yours. Aaaaand GO!
I love Wordle! I played with it for at least an hour the other night, pasting in all sorts of chapters. Isla’s Inheritance has an amazing word cloud…besides Dominic, I see pirate, ballerina, Dracula, ghost. Very intriguing.
There may be a Halloween party involved. 😉
