I copied my manuscript in its current full-length entirety into that wondrous website for word-lovers and seekers of writing prompts, Wordle, and this is what resulted. I have to say, I’m surprised that “like” is so prevalent. I have an aversion to similes — I expected “boy” to be the word that really popped out. Ah well. This means that not only was it fun to see my manuscript dolled up in neat colorful piles of words, it also turned out to be useful. Like scrubbing bubbles. Or tinted moisturizer. Or bananas. Bananas equal versatility in a skin. So go punch a poem into Wordle and see what happens to your words.
