Ha! The dark fantasy/horror/vampire/zombie/voodoo novella is FINISHED. With the first draft. It 27K words, and was some of the most fun I’ve had writing in a long time. Now, admire my wordle:

I find that wordle kind of upsetting. The name of my protag hugely overweighs everything else, and “said” is so prominent. Too much dialogue? Oh, well. It’s a first draft: much grooming to do yet.


  1. It would be funny if writers used tools like Wordle to seriously determine the quality of their work.

    I think it’s cool. Dimitris talks a lot.

  2. After looking at a bunch of wordles, I finally realized that they – very reasonably – exclude a bunch of function words (but let in things like ‘any’ and ‘through’). I wonder just which words they exclude.
