Where is my mind?

As I've mentioned, I've been doing morning pages on and off (and more on than off) for the last few months. When I realised that I'd written my hundredth today, it seemed like something to celebrate, so I exported the lot into a text file and fed it to Wordle to see what's been praying on my mind. Turns out it's this:
Wordle: 100 Morning Pages

I'd tried writing some analysis of this, but it gives such a neat overview that I decided that writing about it spoilt the impact. (Maybe I'll do some graphs later.) I will mention that this represents 74,470 words, a number that invokes equal parts pride and mortification. So much time! So much effort! So many words, all typed into the tiny keyboard of my lovely little phone!

Heh. It's the proper and common nouns I find most interesting. Most of the time I enjoy the longhand-writing aspect of mine, but now I wish I could do this on them.

It's the proper and common nouns I find most interesting.

Which is in itself interesting, because the thing that struck me most is the amount of qualification: 'certainly', 'probably', 'really', 'pretty', 'much'... I guess that reflects a desire for accuracy, or at least a tendency to (over-)interpretation. Also that I seem to spend all my time thinking, feeling, reading and writing (which I suppose isn't surprising given the context).

That said, now I come to look at the proper nouns they are intriguing. I'm not surprised that tinyjo appears, obviously, but it's interesting that the only other people that feature are archie and squigglyruth...

I am such a sucker for interpretation of data. I spent far too long last night graphing and otherwise analysing this stuff. The sheer number of options that Wordle offers, both technical and aesthetic, nearly paralysed me...
