wordle: wow.

How have I not known about Wordle until today?

I just visited the blog of someone who has found me here, a woman who goes by “Patois” and blogs at Whee! All the Way Home (check it out) and who has finished a 50,000 word novel in one month. Not bad. Anyway, thanks, Patois, for turning me on to this awesome site, which will take any block of text that you submit- a term paper, a blog, a Dear John letter- and turn it into art.

I Wordled the first chapter of my book, at left, and I think the results are frame-worthy. And illuminating. Good thing I didn’t know about Wordle when I was actually writing, though, or I may never have finished.
