Here's another reason to procrastinate...
Cut and paste some of your novel/short story into this web page to find out if your writing style is male or female:
I tried it with a few stories I'd written from a male first person POV to see how effective my attempts at 'writing like a man' were. Mixed results. It thought some of the stories were written by a man, but most of them it correctly guessed they'd been written by a woman. Apparently it's all down to your word choices (not sure how scientific it all is).
All my novels have female main characters (first person POV) and the software said they were written by a female...which was a relief ;o)
