On a comment yesterday I made a guess as to which words were going to come up in the "Wordle" test on my books and manuscripts. Now, I only did the first chapters of each, but the results were surprising:
First, my predictions: then, he, she, heart, was
The actual results:
This Time for Always: turned, place, eyes, around, hand, bar, back
Wild Wedding Weekend: stage, woman, right, one, show, know
This Can't Be Love: back, one, head, around, know, time, long, tub
"This Feels Like Home" (WIP): really, head, eyes, like, away, around, dance
In many cases some of the most oft repeated words helped to set the scene a bit. In Always, Logan has come back to town to buy the bar Sharlie manages. In WWW Noah and Abby are on a gameshow. In Love Jessica finds Zach in the bathtub. And in "Home" we're back at the bar again.
Words I'm going to be on the lookout for are: around, back, one, eyes, and know. Around came up in three out of the four searches. Interesting. Apparently I'm not a good guesser!
Until next time,
