Wordle.com is a juicy little nugget for the literarily inclined. Wordle generates word clouds from text that you provide it by analyzing the frequency of words in the text and then assigning a greater prominence to the words that appear more frequently. You can then change the cloud by changing the colors, fonts, and layouts. It’s really quite fun! Feed Wordle the text of your latest article, or a manual draft, or that novel you’ve been working on. Or go to, say, Project Gutenberg, and grab something and try that out. It’s a great time-waster, as if I had time to waste these days.
