Ha. My fiction tends to come out female (makes sense, as I almost always write from a female POV), but my blog entries are almost always male.

Mine are female. Which is interesting because I'm not especially feminine in real life.

Fun exercise, Margo. Thanks for sharing it. :)

This program definitely works.

I've played "Guess the Gender of that Character" with my readers (which is a lot of fun, by the way), and they always say female, no matter what. The Gender Genie said female for everything, even for my male protagonist. *sigh* I guess I need to practice thinking like a man... um... how would I go about doing that?

How to have a masculine narrative manner? I don't know, but I did write something on Feb 18 about writing fiction for male readers:

I hope this helps. . .
