The Top 25 Words in The Alchemist's Kitchen
Kelli Agodon posted a link to Word Counter where writers can put the entire text of a book into the site and within seconds find out their most frequently used words. I remember that with The Cartographer's Tongue my top words were light, body, and cream. This time I was utterly surprised that one is my top word. I wonder if that includes "someone" and "everyone" because after reading several poems, I don't see many ones. The positive nature of the words is also unexpected. However, I do love having tulips on the list as well as blue and travel. It allows me an insight into my own obsessions. Thank you, Kelli!
