How fun is this?

In celebration of my finished CROSS MY HEART revision…


Thanks to Sarah Enni for mentioning Tagxedo in this post. I’ve used Wordle before and liked it fine, but after just a few minutes of playing, I became a Tagxedo convert. Quick and simple, this program lets users create artistic word clouds in a variety of fonts, shapes, and colors, then easily save them. Great for editing out crutch words, brainstorming titles, and making pretties. 🙂

Have you used Tagxedo before?

  1. Love it! I’ve used Wordle before (for fun and to help me weed out overused words) but this is so much cooler.

  2. Cute! I’ve also only used Wordle. I’ll have to keep this in mind!

  3. I LOVE how the heart turned out! Glad you enjoyed Tagxedo as much as I did 😀 And those word combos have me excited about your book!!

  4. So fun! And congrats on finishing your revision. 🙂

  5. Congrats on finishing revisions!!! *high fives* This is such a cool thing – even cooler than Wordle (don’t tell it I’m going to cheat LOL!!!)

  6. That is very cool, I’ll definitely have to try it out. Congratulations on finishing your revision, I love the names of your characters.

    I’ve never used it (or heard of it until now), but I’m about to! I’m most curious to see which words pop up super huge (I think I have a pretty good idea what they’ll be 😉 )

    Also, I LOVE the heart and it just makes me want to read your story all over again. Can’t wait to see what happens with it!

    • Alison, I would *love* to see a CM word cloud! You’ll have to email it to me when you make one.

      • Alison Miller

        So, I made a CM word cloud and imagine that – three words were larger than any other. Can you guess? I’ll email it to you. 🙂 Also, they didn’t have a football. 😦 So, I went with a shark. Still love it though. I will definitely do another if I ever finish my revision. :S Thanks for pointing me to this!

        • Aww… No football?! I kind of like the idea of a shark though. Such a random animal that has such a big impact on so many of CM’s characters. I can’t wait to see it!

  8. Ooh, SO fun! Congrats on finishing your revision! 🙂

  9. Becky is WAY too big on there. 😉 But I love how Max is all big and right in the middle! I want to do one of these. Maybe I’ll post it on Friday.
