I write under a couple of pseudo-names. And yes, one of them is a female name. I also meet up with a women's book group the third Thursday of every month. We grab a quite bite, talk romance and chick lit., then maybe go over to someone's pad to watch Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. And we write romance and erotica (quite a bit of coin there).

As for Dagstine, I save that for the SF-Fantasy-Horror fare.

You might not Ali, but as a 54 year old white male I would be incensed by such blatant ageism. Incensed, I tell you :lol:

Thanks for posting that link Ali!

The statistics speak for themselves. An interesting article.

I just read the article, and it was very good. It's totally true that there were successful novelists before Richardson et al. Somehow the birth of the realist novel came to be seen as the birth of the novel and everything written before then (lots of it by very successful women) was disregarded as mere romance.

The points about many successful women writers being either childless or lesbian were good ones. I remember thinking something similar when someone announced a year or so ago research into whether a gay gene was associated with creativity: it doesn't take research to realise that you'll have a lot more time to write, paint or compose if you don't have children...
