Fellow confession writer Roberta Beach Jacobson posted a link to The Gender Genie (http://bookblog.net/gender/genie.php), a program that will examine a piece of writing and determine if it had a male or a female author.
For fun, I tested three confessions and the program thought they were written by a female. That's good, I thought, because they're supposed to be!
Then I tested two hardboiled pieces of crime fiction--violent, sexual, as masculine as I get. The program thought they were also written by a female.
Maybe my crime fiction isn't as hardboiled as I thought it was. Maybe I should become a florist...
