Wordles: Just, like… know things, okay?

I realised that I never created a Wordle for the second run of Writing Cards and Letters, like I did for the first run. For that matter, I haven’t written a second joker for it either. But first things first. Here’s a Wordle for all the words used in the things I wrote for the second Writing Cards and Letters, not including diagrams, videos, or those speculative card games, but including the text of ISS vs. LHC that’s directly on the blog.

Writing Cards and Letters 2

I usually look for related words that are coincidentally near each other. The big words don’t leap out to me as saying anything much, apart from ‘just know’, I guess, but I like the ‘much writing, one head’ which could even be continued as ‘much writing, one head, two HeartValet feel things.’ Is that how to get intense emotion into writing? Having two HeartValet implants instead of one? Then there’s the LHC baby and the time dealer. But which is true of my writing? Is it ‘Find story, keep.’ or ‘years lost’?

Anyway, I’ve written many other things since that first year of Writing Cards and Letters, some just because I felt like it, and some because of NaPoWriMo. Here’s the Wordle for all the poems I posted for NaPoWriMo, which I participated in for about half a month before realising I had a short story to write:


Gave one internet? Judged? Just like (better) things! Loud feminine? Masculine wrong? Awesome never? Doctor McFly?! Don’t be concerned by the large ‘die want’; the ‘die’ is mostly the German word. Or it’s a result of ‘clear verse, soul worse (perhaps.)’

Here’s the Wordle of the various things I’ve written and posted to my blog since the end of the first Writing Cards and Letters that didn’t fit into either project. I did not include the Mozartpuffreissnitten recipe, since that’s more of a blog post than a piece of writing, and again I didn’t include the text of things I made videos or audio recordings for in that time.

CERN Princess

Well, this is interesting. Clearly I’m a CERN princess. Or a time chameleon; wouldn’t that be cool? A chameleon that has chronophore cells instead of chromatophore cells, so it can resemble (or presemble) any time? Eyes spread is just unreasonable, though. This one has a lot of names of real people in it, which probably came from my origin story.

I find it amusing that this one is all about a princess and the others are just, like, things. So I decided to see what the relative weights were when I put the text for all three things in one Wordle:

Like Love Okay

Just know. One time, like, love, okay? People, think! Die, baby dealer! Got thulium? Story, song, chlorine… really?! Life: Make Something. There are a lot of names in here, which is interesting considering each name is usually only used in one story. Is it a bad thing to refer to somebody by name often? I tend to get lost in stories where characters are referred to in too many different ways.

I may have to challenge myself to write something about the word combinations found in these, or write something that doesn’t contain any of my most common words.

Thing A Week Word Cloud (with Jokers)

I forgot to add the two jokers to the previous word cloud, so here’s a new one including the entire Thing A Week:


Nice to see pants make an appearance. There are many interesting word combinations in this one, but those of you who still have living brains can find them yourself. And for all you zombies out there, remember, never eyes.

A Year in a Word Cloud

Here’s the Wordle word cloud for my entire Thing A Week. I forgot to add the jokers, because I’m tired and I really should have gone to bed instead of staying up the extra twenty minutes to do this. So I’ll post another word cloud tomorrow.

word cloud

You can find plenty of messages in there about the project, if you really look.

Make time. Write. Every day. Always trying. Story soon. Good things, really? Went without cause?  Took thought, left life. Found something. Leave now. End. Live. Remember dream.

But mostly, I like that the word ‘cage’ is trapped in an O.

I have several ideas for my next project, but first I have to rest for a while and finish some of the things I didn’t have time to do over the last year. Watch this space. Or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Diamonds Word Cloud

Here at last is the Wordle word cloud for the diamonds:
diamondssmall1I’ve written quite a few repetitive poems in this suit so I’m surprised that some of the most prominent words are names. Perhaps it just seems that way because names just happened to be shaded a darker colour than words such as ‘just’ and ‘leave’.

I’ll post a word cloud for the entire Writing Cards and Letters project soon.

Clubs Word Cloud

Here is the Wordle word cloud for the clubs.


I would have changed the font to make it more like the other ones, but I liked the ways some of the words were grouped in this one. Write know. One dream now collider. Eventually came LEP time!

Hearts Word Cloud

Here is the Wordle word cloud for the hearts:

I forgot to post it earlier. I’ve made a new ‘Wordle’ category so you can easily get to the previous word cloud. 

There will be a Thing coming up in just under an hour. It’s already finished, but I’m hoping to finish the multimedia extravaganza that goes with it before midnight. I don’t think I will, but I’m going to try to at least give you a taste of it, because it’s the part I’ve spend the most time on, and frankly, the main thing that will make this Thing cool. Look at me still typing when there’s multimedia extravaganzing to do…

Spades Word Cloud

In my continuing quest to do everything that Jonathan Coulton does, I’ve used all the words from everything I wrote from the Ace to the King of spades (including letter-inspired writing from that period) to create this most excellent word cloud at the even more most excellent site Wordle.

My first attempt had the words ‘I’m excellent’ perfectly aligned, but then I went and changed the font. Still, there are some interesting messages to be found in this one.
