M is for Masculinity.

I am a woman, but for some reason whenever I sit down and write, I usually write in a male voice. Not always, but more often than I do a female one. I have no idea why that is. My Alpha reader is a twenty-three year old guy who works with troubled teen boys. He tells me my voice is authentic. I have no idea how that happens. I am not only a girl, I’m really a girl. You know, the kind that has tea parties, and knits and sews and likes to wear dresses almost all the time; that’s me, but that’s not what I write. I write dark. I write masculine.

Am I alone out there, or is there more of us?
