Is you're inner writer MALE or FEMALE?

This is the coolest little thing - do try it. The Gender Genie analizes your blogpost, fiction or non-fiction writing samples and can tell if you're a male or female by the words used. (thanks to Thomma Lyn whose site I stole the link from - hee!)

According to their 'scientific methods', the blog I posted earlier today qualifies me as a male. Clearly, I wrote it with the right side of my brain (wtf?!) while the first chapter of my novella catagorizes me as a female writer. Aha! Got me. Then I got crafty and entered a scene from the novella that's supposed to be from the hero's point of view and the results indicated I'm still a female. Wow, that was a blow. I thought I wrote from a guy's pov pretty well. Guess I'm wrong. I need to get in touch with my maleness. Clearly, I need to see the Bond flick again *grinning*.

Ha, I'll have to play with the Genie some more and plug in Max's point of view, from Thy Eternal Summer!

Yes, and hopefully, he won't become emasculated and turn into Max-ine !! :D

Hi Wylie.

I didn't realize you had a blog until you posted your link on the TRW board. :)

This is an awesome way to determine if your dialoge, internal or external, is written from the correct gender perspective. Awesome post! I'm going to steal the link. ;)

Welcome, Christine! I see your posts on Drunk Writers and Amy Ruttan's blogs -- glad to have you stop in my humble little blog!!

I put in 589 words of my NaNo and just found out that when I write women's fiction apparently I write like a man. What's up with that, I was really surprised. And Cheers on Daniel Craig. I have a few more pictures of him where you can see the entire speedo!!

Hiya Amy
More DC pics with ENTIRE speedo (which I understand that Dame Judi said he filled out exceedingly well - hee!)??

And I blog like a man! Who knew. Try putting a blog entry in and see what the gender genie comes up with.

Wylie I entered my blog, I'm still male.

Who would've thunk it.
