I’m not a fan of defining writer habits by gender because writing traits authors have can be had by anyone, regardless of gender. Not all male novelists are this way nor are all female novelists that way. If you’re a shitty writer and a person who refuses to look beyond society’s say-so on who you should be, stereotypes of whoever you’re supposed to be will become evident and prevail throughout your writing. Hell, you probably are who you’re “supposed” to be and you never truly considered the drawbacks of exactly following society’s grove.
Instead of taking these jokes as jabs at the male novelist community, I take them as jabs at shitty writers who also happen to be total conformists and male. Enjoy.
