Looking for Overused Words

I created a database that lets me review how often words occur in my manuscript. This helps me look for habits I have regarding overusing certain words. From the database, I receive a list of words and a count of how often each is used.

A word cloud provides a visual representation for how often words occur. Words that appear more frequently have greater prominence. Moreover, it is cute.

I created this word cloud using Wordle.
