There is a Book Bloggers Christmas Swap, but the deadline to sign up is in two days!

Last week Big A little a pointed out the New York Times Children’s Books Special Fall Issue.

Wordle is the fun program you’ve probably seen by now that makes a word cloud of any text you paste.  An interesting feature is the word count.  Under the ‘Language’ tab under such options as ‘Remove Common Turkish Words’ is ‘Show Word Counts.’  It shows each word in your manuscript alphabetically and how many times you’ve used it.  I can tell at a glance that my character might be woeful a little too much, and I mention trees more than trucks.  Sort of constructive!

Are you a writer in Seattle?  Write-O-Rama is coming up, and it sounds pretty nifty.

Have a great weekend!
