So someone wrote a nifty little java aplet that makes really pretty tag-cloud like graphics from either your delicious tags or from a block of your text.

So I plugged in the text of the novella that I wrote last fall into the little window and got:

mars tag cloud

It's not very pretty, but it's sort of cool. And a little embarrassing, but these things happen. I'll definitely be making more of these.

Thanks amy for the link to this. I agree about putting these on shirts.

Hope your weekend is going well.

Out of curiosity, I copy and pasted the text of Cory Doctorw's Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town into the same applet and got the following result.

"Said" is probably the most frequently non-determiner-word in fiction, though I think I probably need to do something about my overuse of the word "probably."
