Repeated Words

How do you know if you are using a word to many times? #writetip Check out Wordle. I’m probably the last to know about this, but it’s cool. Wordle creates a word cloud in which your words get bigger the more often they appear in the text.

I uploaded my first chapter of my third novel and what I got back was a visual of the words. I found out that my protagonists names was used the most – it was the largest. The names of characters got smaller as their importance in the story reduced.

This is just one more way to validate you are doing the right thing. How fun is this writing business? I learn something new every day.
