Wordle of my story "You Don't Get Three Mistakes"

I love the concept of Wordle, graphic representation of text. I plugged in the text of my short story, "You Don't Get Three Mistakes" from Beat to a Pulp ezine and, after fiddling with the layout, got this image. I chose it because, frankly, it looks like a pistol. Can't go wrong there, considering the story's a western. Plus, my name's buried front and center.

Here's the link back to the Wordle homepage where this image lives. Head on over and see what kind of magic you can create.

You do know how to distract me from that flash.

PS Google didn't want to take my identity, so I had to click Anonymous. Sheesh.

Patti - Distractions. Isn't that the internet's *only* function?

Elaine - The Wordle's are a very fun concept. I've got one on there for my Truman novel, too. I love it when words are art.
