Two Fun Diagnostic Sites for Authors

First is Gender Genie which guesses the sex of the author.  Very useful for us females trying to duplicate man-speak in our dialogue.  Check it out here:  http://bookblog.net/gender/genie.php.

Second is I Write Like and, since I just found it today, is causing me to veer away from my proposed To Do list to insert snippets of my various writings to see the results.  Here's that link:  IWL.me/.

So far, I write like Mario Puzo, Arthur Clarke and David Foster Wallace.  Which made me wonder if female authors were in the database.

So I dug out a love scene and a fight scene from my WIP mainstream and finally hit upon two female authors:  Anne Rice and J.K. Rowling, respectively, proving authors of both genders are awaiting your comparison.

Now, back to work . . .
