A friend recently introduced me to a site called Wordle (www.wordle.net), where you can paste a selection of text into a blank field and turn it into a “word cloud.” The size of each word in the cloud is indicative of its frequency in the text. Such a simple idea, yet a brilliant new way to waste time (you can keep randomizing until you get a cloud with a shape/color scheme that you really like). Below is the word cloud I generated with the text from my first post on this blog. Cool, huh?

Check out the new link in the Junk Drawer (Grammar Girl: Quick & Dirty Tips for Writing), and also check out the polls page for a couple of new polls!
(Not that anyone was responding to the polls that were already there, but here’s to hoping for a sudden influx of poll-loving readers. In other words, psychologists: increase the N value!)

Check out the newest addition to the blog, “The Dictionary.” It a just-for-fun page where I’ll post definitions for cool words that I come across. It’s not directly related to the psychology of creativity, but I figure it might be of some interest to my fellow writers.
