I'm writing just now about Calven - the 14 year old boy Dorothy is taking care of -- and I need to know how he would refer (in his thoughts or around his peers) to his . . . ah . . . personal equipment. And while I'm not squeamish about language, I don't want to attract the 'wrong' sort of attention to this blog, so I'll go for the old missing letters ploy.
Would a 14 year old boy of today, of decidedly local (western North Carolina/east Tennessee) background (and, till recently, hanging around with bad company) talk about his p____r? Or his d__k? Or what?
The things a writer has to consider in search of authenticity!
Inquiring minds want to know. Or at least, this one does. Please email me rather than using the word in a reply.
