Cool Time Waster

I found a really fun tool that takes any text and arranges it in what is called a word cloud. I input the entire text of my novel and this is the output. It uses the frequency of a word's use to determine the relative sizes. Cool, huh? Here is how the tool describes itself.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
