The Clown Wordle

I decided to give Wordle a go. The site can deliver any text you feed it as a ‘word-cloud’. I gave it the manuscript of my chapbook,The Clown of Natural Sorrow and the result is below. I must have used more similes than I thought.

If you click on the link below, it takes you to a larger version of the image:
title="Wordle: The Clown"> src=""
style="padding:4px;border:1px solid #ddd">

By the way, I'm told there are only a handful of copies left of The Clown. It would be good to sell out and, if you feel either tempted or altruistic, please place an order from the link to the book above. Cheers.

A fun site Rob!
I tried a few and the put the text from the Scottish Pamphlet Poetry site - unfortunately I can't put the link here. I thought it was an appropriate image for the poetry pamphlets...I wonder if I can do postcards with it.

I'm sure you'll sell out of your pamphlet soon - why not bring them to the EIBF next Friday?

Good luck with the postcards!
I can't make it on Friday, unfortunately - work, work work...
