Today’s distraction…

My WIP  is told from alternating points of view, two male, and one female. Sometimes I wonder how believable my males are. Okay it seems, according to the “Gender Guesser.”

Based on research done in 2003, this program analyzes your writing, and using an algorithm determines whether it was written by a male or a female. I plugged in several samples, and while some were given a weak score,  the male POV sections were all identified as written by a male author. Likewise for the female sections. Yay me!

If you want to try the program, here’s the link:

The idea for the search came from Chapter three in Writing Characters Who’ll Keep Readers Captivated: Nail Your Novel by Roz Morris.
