Wordle!

Word puzzle geeks unite! There’s a new game in town!

Thanks to our friend, Tera Lynn Childs (whose debut novel, Oh.My.Gods is getting raves reviews), I learned about a website called Wordle. It allows you to type in key words from a particular theme and create what looks like a word scramble.

Here’s what I made for THE ABC’S OF KISSING BOYS, featuring characters and key words and themes:


Hop on over there and create your own Wordles. Maybe commemorate important relationships (Best friend? Boyfriend?) or events (Prom? Teammates?). And remember to press “Randomize” for numerous different lay-outs.

Have fun and let us know how you like it!

Another author "wordled" your book, Kelly? What a lovely testament to how much she clearly liked it.

Tera Lynn Childs said...

Yours turned out so pretty, Tina. Then again, we already know your words are art. =)

Oh wow! That's cool! I'll have to check that out!

TinaFerraro said...

LOL, TLC...you're a keeper, ma'am.

Thanks, Christy...it's fun!

And for anyone who cares, I had to delete my first comment because it came out wrong...and my "preview" button stopped working a month or so ago, so it's "publish" or nothing.

Naima said...

Wow, that's cool. I've never even heard about these!

Kiki said...

Haha, that's very fun. I'll have to play around with that, too!

Jessica Burkhart said...

TinaFerraro said...

Thanks, Naima, Kiki & Jessica...it's one of those sites where you can lose yourself for hours...

Yesterday was my anniverary and I thought of all the great things that describe her, then "Wordled" it. It turned out better than I thought it would so I printed it on some nice paper and tossed it in a frame. She loved it! This Internet thing just may take off!

TinaFerraro said...

Chuck, what a terrific Wordle story...and happy anniversary to you and your wife!

Incidentally, I made and sent one to Kelly about our cp-ship that I also printed and posted next to my computer. :)

The Golfing Librarian said...

Wife? Who said anything about a wife? ;)

TinaFerraro said...

Okay, Chuck, um...significant other?

The Golfing Librarian said...

*SHE* is VERY wifey!!!!

BTW, my oldest daughter has been "Wordling" all day. We've created a monster!

Hey, glad we drew in your daughter, too, Chuck! I showed it to mine today ad we decided it might work well for homemade birthday cards.
