Just For Fun

I was brainstorming titles the other day (hard! That is a unique and bizarre skill) and thought to make a word cloud of my WiP so I could see what words most commonly appear. After the entire universe laid the hammer down on Java, Wordle was out. However I came across Tagxedo, which not only let me easily upload all 60,000 words in a flash, it let me choose the shape of the word cloud! Check her out:

TAGXEDO

Holy schnikes, that looks cool doesn’t it?? Of course none of the words in that cloud translated literally to the title, but I really dig having that image on my desktop.

Have you used Tagxedo or something like it before? How do you brainstorm titles?

(If you’re curious about what I finally came to with the title, it’s: MISS MATCH. Yay!)

This is so cool! I’m terrible at titles. I always leave it until the end, and then I hem and haw over it forever. Love yours though! The play on words is so cute! :)

Gah! This is amazing. I want to try it now myself. As for titles…I am horrible at them. Lots of lists and lots of brainstorming. I feel like it’s a trial and error process. Always. ;)

Ooh, that is so cool … and would make an awesome writing office poster. Just saying. Titles are freaking hard; taglines, too. Maybe I should try Tagxedo to come up with a title for my dissertation proposal. That’s totally legit, right?

Oooh, that’s so cool! I made one in the shape of a music note. It’s so pretty. :-)
