So, after being totally blown away by the quality (and number) of entries at The Writer’s Voice contest, I joined Kip Rechea (http://kiperoo.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/stats-from-thewritersvoice/) in her heroic quest to analyze the entries. At least for me, there’s nothing like some good number crunching to distract one from twitter-stalking the judges.
Kip posted an excellent break-down of the 200 entries’ genres earlier today (see above link) with some oh-so-satisfying graphs, so I thought I’d venture into slightly less scientific territory: trends.
And here (in an appropriately less scientific display) is the Wordle with the results of what I found.
Not every entry is represented, but if there was a key ingredient to an entry’s plot (that also happened to be key to another entry’s plot) it got recorded and funneled into the magical Wordle website. (If you’re not familiar with Wordle, the size of the word or phrase represents its frequency.)
And stay-tuned: I think we’re going to be able to churn out a Wordle of all the characters names alphabetized!! How’s that for geeking it up in style?
