I've often thought that having a histogram of word use in my stories would be educational. Today I found a site that makes a word cloud out of an uploaded text. This is the hundred most-used words in the section I'm currently working on (section three of four total, about 25K words).
Hana and Mari are the protagonist's daughters; Jackson is the antagonist (who isn't even present in the scene so I'm glad he ranked!).
Warning signs of bad writing: looked, going, started, stop, maybe,thought, sleeping, walking... My critique group might be suprised to see that 'trudged' didn't make it in the list!
