Since I’ve been banging around doing almost nothing for the past few days, there might as well be something to show for all of it. Get yourself to Wordle.net immediately and make some of these. All you have to do is copy and paste a little text and voila.
I just copied and pasted my “Lucy has a Vagrant Heart” poem into the Wordle creator. You can make so many changes to color and form and such. Here’s “At the Hillcrest,” my dragonfly-infestation poem:
I’m still playing round with it a bit, but you do have to know how to screencapture to turn these into .jpg or .pngs. They give you a sweet little piece of html so you can place these forever on your blog or site, but they are small.
No go make one and leave me a link so I can find your Wordle.

Terry needs to use this! I just put some random text in and fiddled with the word count a bit – oh my!>>GOD this has to stop.
Ha, I did three or four I think, didn’t save them all. I had fun putting my short stories, poems, blog etc in there and seeing what I talk about the most 😉
It’s too late to play with that right now – but I will tomorrow! Thanks for the fun stuff! That’s just cool!!
Uh, oh. And I have some dozen short stories in various stags of pupaehood in need of flutter-cooling by the fan of my wings and then this whacks the hive!>(Resist the urge to play . . . <>for now<>.) >>Good stuff. You find & create the neatest things. 🙂
