I follow the Books and Such Literary Agency blog. Michelle Ule created a blog post on August 7th titled, "The Value of a Word Census." As part of this post, she mentioned a neat site called The Gender Genie. By copying and pasting 500 words or more of your work, then selecting if the piece is fiction, non-fiction or a blog post, The Gender Genie uses a simplified version of an algorithm to predict the gender of the author.
This sounded like such a neat idea that I had to give it a try. It seemed neat until six out of seven times it says I am male. I guess I write like a guy. Should I be concerned? LOL!
The Gender Genie is a great way to let authors see what words they use. Hope you try it and let me know how it works for you.
